Party Pandas - With Masked Ballons

Party Pandas is one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets you can choose this year with a £45 purchase.

The Pandas in this set are so cute! They can be great for 'fast' cards too - just stamp in black ink ... and you are done :o) 

This card wasn't a 'fast' card! The Panda image comes with one Balloon, but I wanted lots of them. I stamped the first image and then stamped just the balloon again several times onto copy paper. I cut the balloons out by hand and added a little temporary adhesive to the back of each of them - these were my masks.

I added a mask over the first balloon and then stamped the next two above it - I also masked off the whole of the bottom half of the card with scrap paper, so I didn't mess up my Panda image. More masks were added to the new Balloons and then I stamped the next one. 

I continued masking and stamping until I reached the top of the card. 

I used Memento Black ink for the image stamping and then coloured using the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I'm still practising with these :o)

The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival ink and cut out using one of the Stitched Shapes framelits.

I highlighted each Balloon using a White Gel Marker and then used the Light Pool Party Blends around the complete image.
