Allsorts Challenge 510: For a Child

Hello and Welcome! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week we want to see creations made "For  a Child", picked by Wendy. My cute Penny Black stamps come in so handy for kids cards. The stamp I used today is an older one called "Balloon Madness".
Penny Black Balloon Madness Stamp  (no longer available) 


This cute stamp is unfortunately no longer in production, but if you are lucky you might find it on ebay or etsy. I stamped the image using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink on Winsor & Newton Watercolor paper. Coloring was done with my Zig clean Color markers and a Zig Detailer Brush. A clear glitter brush (Wink of Stella) was used on the balloons to make them sparkle. I originally wanted to use crystal glaze, but couldn't find my bottle since I moved everything around a few months ago. The sparkles look really  nice though!

The sentiments on the top are from the set Sweet Wishes which I think is so perfect for children's cards, and the small "happy birthday" sentiment is from the Penny Black set Snippets. I used the Penny Black die set Pinwheel (which was a gift from our team leader from few years ago, thank you again, Brenda) to cut out one of the sentiments which was stamped on white card stock, then inked the edges with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink. The butterflies were done with a Martha Stewart butterfly trio punch which I've had forever and sadly it's now only working with pattern paper and I can no longer punch out from card stock. But I do have lots of scraps and I like the polka dotted butterflies, so it worked out well. Tiny pearls were added to the butterflies bodies. The striped cardstock is also from my paperscraps. The white twine I used is from Stampin Up.



I went with pretty and bright colors perfect for a girl, flesh color and pale pink for the skin with some light pink for the cheeks, gray for the body. Balloons were colored with light blue, light pink, yellow and bright yellow and the grass was done with light green. All colors besides the light blue were part of the set of 36 Zig Clean Color markers, which is really all you need, as these colors do dilute and mix well and I could have achieved the light blue balloon color by using a diluted cobalt blue from the set of 36 marker.
