Tiny Townie Blossom loves Balloons. Tiny Townies are a new stamp style for Stamping Bella, but I really love how they've turned out. They're a bit like kid versions of the Uptown Girls (and guys), but their smaller size makes them perfect for standard A2 cards. I personally find them to be very sweet and whimsical.
I started the card by stamping out Blossom onto some Copic Marker paper. I stamped her in black hybrid ink, then colored her in with Copics.To make the balloons a bit more interesting, I added stripes and polkadots with my white gel pen.
Since the stamp has some very delicate and thin parts (ex. Blossom's hand, the balloon strings, etc), I decided against fussy-cutting. But I still wanted that part of the card to look interesting, so I cut the panel at an angle and went around the edges with a mini ink blender and Faded Jeans distress ink.
I cut a piece of wide-striped neutral paper to 4 x 5¼" and adhered it to a standard top-folding A2 base. I added the stamp panel with foam squares. For the sentiment, I grabbed Lawn Fawn's Flying By stamp set and stamped onto a thin cardstock strip. I snipped off an angled edge on one side and adhered it to the card with foam squares.
For decorations, I went with something a little different. I had a pack of very large enamel dots from Webster's Pages that I've held off using for a while due to their size. But they seemed to fit here perfectly. I also added a few smaller enamel dots and some wood veneer stars.
