Avery Elle Challenge!

Hi! Just sliding in with a late entry to the Avery Elle I❤️U challenge. It’s a sketch challenge and it’s yonks since I’ve joined in. Here’s the sketch

Here’s my card to fit the challenge

I love the movement in the sketch and my ‘movement’ is using the balloon -albeit in a different direction! I’ve stayed true to the rough placement of the other elements.
It’s created on acetate and the duck from Avery Elle’s Story Book set

You can get that set over at The Day Special Stamp Store
I’ve cut out a panel centrally and then added some patterned paper behind it on the inside to give some depth and a background to the moving balloon. The duck and balloon are stamped onto the acetate panel and then stamped and coloured separately onto some white card. Trim out the elements and adhere them behind the acetate with clear adhesive to give a cool dimensional effect- hard to capture it on camera without getting your reflection too!
Do visit the challenge blog- they’ve another challenge coming up really soon!

See you shortly..I’m still on my phone and still no connection.

    I just love this! Love the look of the colored paper behind the acetate, and you really did achieve great movement with the balloon!
