Balloon Kaylee

Before I get started with today's post, I thought I'd mention something. You may have noticed a couple of watercolored projects recently and I said I used Tombow markers. Well, I just have to tell you that I got the full set as an early birthday present from my hubby!! :) He got them from Amazon and I really don't think you can beat that price! I'm having a ball playing with them so you should be seeing a lot more watercolored images from me!

Also, I got a new printer and even though it's an inkjet, the ink is water resistant! It's an Epson Workforce 840 and works with watercolors, Copics and colored pencils with OMS!! All this awesome new stuff has definitely helped to bring my mojo back!

Anyway, on to today's card:

I used Balloon Kaylee, a sketch from Mojo Monday, and the Shabby Backgrounds digi papers from Iralamija.

I watercolored Kaylee with my Tombows and paper pieced the balloons. The die cut behind Kaylee is from My Favorite Things and I finished it all off with some twill tape (tea-dyed), pink Timeless Twine (also tea-dyed), a little silk flower that I glittered and a button from my stash.

This card is also for the following challenges: I hope you like it and TFL!
