Digital Image on Kraft & Vellum

I've printed digital images on different kinds of medium, watercolor paper, acetate, patterned paper...what is another one or two? Using the Cricut Design Space, I uploaded the image and cleaned the image so I can have it drawn by the Cricut Explore. This image is easy to clean compared to the other images I've attempted to design in CDS.

I used a Ranger Embossing pen to draw the image on vellum. I embossed the cloud horse using WOW! White Puff Powder. I used the Cricut pen to draw the image again on kraft cardstock. I colored this image with Staedtler color pencils and a blender pen. I fuzzy cut the bear from the kraft cardstock and the cloud from the vellum. I ran a black marker around the bear to hide any imperfections in the fuzzy cutting. I adhered the bear on the vellum using a foam adhesive. I added Ranger Enamel accents to the eyes of the bear.

I used Strathmore Bristol for the cardbase. I taped this to stabilize it for ink blending. I taped a Hero Arts Irregular Checkerboard stencil on top of the card front. Using a stencil brush, I colored in Simon Says Stamp inks (Audrey Blue, Mint & Sea Glass.)

For additional embellishments, I stamped the balloon from the WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp set. I partially stamped this using Versamark on orange cardstock. I embossed the image with an orange American Crafts embossing powder. The sentiment is from Avery Elle Peonies stamp set. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed this with clear powder. I die cut this using the coordinating die. I blended WPlus9 Sweet Nectar and Hero Arts White dye inks on the balloon. I glittered this with clear Wink of Stella. I added a white crochet as the balloon string, creating a knot which I adhere closer to the balloon.

To put the scene elements together, I attached the balloon with adhesive foam. I adhered the bear and the cloud, letting the string lay on the back of the bear to have the other end sticking out. I also adhered sequins to finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed & brilliant day!
