99 Red Balloons - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge

 Happy weekend! After my daughter shared her card yesterday, I am back with my card for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. We love being inspired by fun challenges and enjoy creating together. 

My first ever favorite song I can remember was 99 Red Balloons from Nena when I was in Kindergarten. Of course, I loved the original, German version that only says 99 Balloons and nothing about red - but for my card it was perfect:

The balloons were stamped, masked, stamped and so on. Then I masked off the rectangle and inked the background with Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink. I added a red line with a marker around that rectangle and colored my balloons with Copics. Not sure how I like my try to make them look translucent by indicating the shapes with a pencil! I added highlights with a white gel pen and adhered my panel to the card base. After I had stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of blue cardstock, I adhered it together with tiny star sequins.

Having the song in your head now? You are welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and happy Easter!
