- Rubbed anti static bag across watercolor paper.
- Inked up images with black ink, stamped onto watercolor paper, sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set.
- In thinking about how I wanted to lay my scene out, I knew I would only use the top of the fence. I cut it in half and planned to butt it together to go across the entire card, and place the little girl in front of the seem to hide it.
- Added color to the images with markers. Starting with lightest shades and I covered the largest area with in an embossed area. Colored the next shade darker covering less area. Color with the darkest shade, covering a small area. NOTE: I only used two shades in smaller areas. Since I'm only used parts of images, I color the sections I needed.
- Used a water brush to blend the colors with in an embossed area, starting with a clean brush tip in the lightest area. Allow to dry.
- Repeat for the rest of the areas to color
- For the leaves of the tree, I inked up the image with Distress Ink pads - starting with yellow, then added orange, a lastly red. I also trimmed the trunk so I could put it higher up in the scene.
- Cut out images.
- I used a cloud template and the Copic Airbrush system to create my cloud background.
- I laid the images out on the background for placement and then adhered them. I used scissors to cut the excess off.
- I drew the balloon on watercolor paper, added color as described in step 4, and cut it out.
- I adhered the balloon above the cat and drew the string in.
- I adhered a piece of orange card stock to the back to frame it.
