Balloon for Any Occasion

Little Red Wagon: Balloon Time
Krafty Chicks: All Occasion

I had some lens paper leftover from when I use to needed to clean microscope slides and decided to use them to dip into color burst. The tissue was allowed to dry then used a stencil to dry emboss. This was then attached with diluted white glued to white cs. Balloon and baby elephant were stamped in black on this bg piece and the elephant stamped again on pp. Fussy cut the pp elephant and die cut the balloon in yellow cs. Hand drew in highlights in white gel pen on balloon and sponged kraft along edges of elephant, then added gray copic highlights. Mounted on b&w strip that is on white cs base. The tiny strip is the pp cut to less than 1/16″.

My sandwich for the stencil as embossing folder using my Cuttlebug is A plate + B plate + stencil + paper + embossing pad + B plate. You can barely see the embossing in this photo but I am really pleased with how well it is embossed and shows.
