Day 15. Copic Markers "... BUT YOU ARE KIND OF AMAZING Just Sayin'" card using WPlus9 Stamps/Dies *W/MEASUREMENTS

Day 15 of #thedailymarker30day Coloring Challenge

  For my card today I used an absolutely adorable stamp set from WPlus9 called "Unforgettable" ~~~ ohhhh sooo cute! I used Copic Markers to color up the elephants and balloons.

I stamped and colored up a bunch of the images from the stamp set using Copic markers.   My first elephant got a little dark, but I went with it. I imagine that elephants are lots of different shades.   I tried to lighten him up so he was easier to see by dotting the image with the Copic markers and I like the way it ended up.
I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. I flipped the sketch.  The measurements are shared below.

These the the Copic markers I used on the balloons:

These are the Copic marker colors I used on the elephants:

After die-cutting the rectangle piece I stamped the sentiment on it. I used a stamping tool and stamped it twice so it turned out darker. 

After putting the balloons together..  by the way.. I cut one of the balloon strings off at the balloon, then turned it around so the string went in the opposite direction as the other balloon, then glued it to under the balloon right at the bottom where the strong was. I lined up the lines so no one really knows.    I put foam tape on the back of the balloons and the elephant.  **note: after I put this piece on the card, I realized I needed two layers of foam on the balloons so I added another square piece of foam on each. 

I put foam tape under the brown card stock layer. I decided last minute to add some brown brads. I punched through the card stock and foam tape and put them on over the foam.

I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #457: MOJO457
