Great Impressions Stamps | Happy Balloons

Good morning! This week I wanted to challenge myself to create a card using this stamp, but without Copic markers. I wanted to use a few different ink colors and create a fun patterned background:

 (Supplies - Stamps: (Great Impressions) Flying By. Ink: (Hero Arts) Soft Cantaloupe, Pale Tomato, Bubble Gum. Cardstock: (PTI) White, Melon Berry. Stickers: BasicGray. Other: Button, twine.)

I used an acrylic block with a grid to line up the stamp, and I alternated the three colors so the pattern was even. I popped up the white panel so the button fits nicely behind it. 

I am entering this card in this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: Birthday Bash.  


... and I'm just noticing that I forgot to add the dot above the "i"! I will fix that before I mail it out. :)

Have a great week!
