Don’t you just love these adorable balloons???? I love them! Here is the card that I came up with.For this card I punched three 1 1/2″ circles into a wood grain embossed cardstock. I used the rock-n-roll technique with a twist on the animals. The monkey was inked in Desert Sand then rolled in Chocolate. I then came back with a tissue and removed a bit of the ink on the nose. I then took a dauber with Champagne and inked the nose. The giraffe was inked in Saffron and then rolled in Saddle. The elephant was inked in Whisper then rolled in Slate. I then took a tissue and removed a little of the ink in the ears, then using the dauber added a little Cotton Candy. Then each animal was fussy cut. The leaves are Artistry leaf #m411e88 and leaf border #m418c8f.
