Love Balloons

Day 2 preview of Bizzy Bec's Sweet Love Collection is called Love Balloons. Be sure to head on over to Bec's Store Blog to see what the rest of the design team have been working on plus remember, she is offering blog candy of the full collection of 5 to 5 lucky people & the draw will be made January 19. These images will only be sold in her store as digis but they are beautiful to work with. I coloured the image with Copics & used distress ink on the outer edges of all the papers plus used Ice Stickles for trim on the paper & the balloons. The hearts were cut with Spellbinder's Heart Nestabilities & then I used Crackle Accents on them & rubbed Walnut distress ink over each when dry. It's the first time I've ever used it but I love that stuff... it's crispy enough to make the edges curl which turned out to be a fabulous effect - hard to see here but I glued the bottom edge down & the top one sort of flips out. I had to find a wee sentiment to fit into the heart & one of them from Stampin Up's Circle of Friendship fit the bill nicely. Challenges:

Do You Stack Up? - Distressing
Paperplay - Cutie Patootie
OLLCB - Bling it On
Crafty Cardmakers - use red & a die cut
Bunny Zoe's - Love is in the Air
