Your Next Stamp Card Mingle

On the Your Next Stamp Fans Yahoo group (here's the link to join if you're not already a member), we had a card mingle, which is basically where you send a card to someone and get a card from someone in return. The only rule was that we had to use a Your Next Stamp image. Now that my recipient has received my card, I can share it here with all of you:

I used the Flying High Fhiona set and a Mojo Monday sketch (flipped on its side). I stamped Fhiona, colored with Copics, and paper pieced her dress and balloon. Then I cut her and the balloon out. I stamped just the little portion of string on the blue paper and then glued Fhiona and the balloon down to match the bit of string. The clouds were stamped and cut out, and then mounted with foam boosters. Lastly I stamped the sentiment (also from the set) right onto the patterned paper with the help of a stamp positioner. I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: patterned papers - Fancy Pants (Daily Grind collection); border punch - Martha Stewart.
