Close to My Heart Convention Themed Up Card!


I am a little hyped up on adrenaline so excuse me for yelling!  ;)

It is the last night of our little off-site Close to My Heart Convention, and I made a little something to commemorate the occasion.  Corporate decided to go with a Disney "Up" Theme for this year's shin-dig, so I thought this was a great way to wrap up our time here...

I tied up the balloon strings with a piece of Extra Thick Twine in Thistle to match the Paper Fundamentals Whimsy striped Thistle Cardstock.

I used the balloon image from the current Operation Smile Happy Everything My Acrylix to create a giant bouquet of balloons on my card.  I stamped them in Black Pigment Ink from the Mini Pigment Pad Set and then used several differnt colors of ShinHan Alcohol Ink Markers to color them in.  I popped some up with foam tape for a bit of dimension.  The clouds are cut on White Daisy CS with the Art Philosophy Cartridge on my Explore.  Then I used a black marker to add the details just like the gals over at convention added to their adorable UP layouts.  The sentiment is bright and cheery like the balloons!
