Sending smiles

I decided to go through my stamps and find a set that i hadn't used in a while.
I came across my mama elephant stash and new what i wanted to create straight away.

I started by die cutting a  stitched rectangle from Lawn fawn and then  i die cut that using the landscape trio creative cuts. 
I die cut randomly but wanted the empty the cuts to all start at one point and fan out. 
I paced the die cut over my card blank and dew roughly were the sequins were to go then set about sticking the sequins on ...double sided tape is a godsend for this type of project.
Once all in place i added the die cut panel on lots of foam tape to hold it in place.
The sentiment was stamped on top the panel with black archival ink. 
The bunny and the balloons from up and away were stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with watercolour pens before being fussy cut and added on to the panel. 
I didn't stamp the balloon strings and have instead used some thread just for an extra detail.

This is stunning! What a great idea, Kate - the perfect use for all of those sequins that I seem to have accumulated :)
