Fab Friday 41

I have been having a lot of fun with this stamp set - originally designed for the folks "Down Under" in Autstralia and New Zealand.  But when the CTMH consultants in North America saw it (and several others), we wanted them as well.  And Close to my Heart responded and added them to our inventory!

The sketch at Fab Friday was great for this little kangaroo - I used it in a card swap with members of my CTMH team last weekend. 

Here you can see some of the details - I love popping up certain elements of a stamp, so I did that with the center balloon and the cake.  I used my PrismaColor colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color most of her - I only have a few alcohol markers and used them to add the yellow and the bold red.

Here's a list of the materials I used to create this card (all CTMH)
Kraft cardstock
White Daisy cardstock
Balloon Ride background paper
Hoppy Birthday (D1597)
Kaboom (S1406) the FUN circle - this is the Stamp of the Month for June
PrismaColor Colored Pencils (not CTMH) and misc alcohol markers
Mounting Foam
Corner Rounder
