I started with a white card base of Neenah Cardstock and masked off a frame, about 1/4" on each side. I used my ink blending tools to ink the background with Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink. I flicked some water on the background after it was all inked up to make some splotches for texture. I stamped the elephant and balloons on some Neenah cardstock, colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I stamped the balloons again on the inked background and added stitching over all of the balloon strings. I adhered the balloons and elephant to the background and tied some string around the elephant's trunk to make it look like he was holding the balloons. I added glossy accents to the balloons. I finished the card off by stamping and embossing the sentiment in versamark ink and white embossing powder. Simple and cute!
