Tying ribbons onto the tail of a kite is what I wanted to do! I started by sponging a background of cloudy sky using Pool Party ink and a mask made with different sized circles glued together, then attached it to a Pool Party card base - yes, even my choice of colour has a party theme!
The kite is made from designer papers from the Everyday Enchantment pack that's free as part of the current Sale-a-bration promotion. It was fun mixing up the patterns! I stuck my paper kite onto a couple of pieces of card stock glued together to give it a good solid chipboard feel.
The kite's tail is drawn with the fine end of a Crumb Cake market and then gone over with a dashed line for a bit of texture. The ribbon is the fabulous 1/8" taffeta ribbon, tied into little knots and attached with glue dots.
The sentiment usually says 'party this way' but I used a marker to take the word 'party', stamped it and doodled the word 'let's' and the exclamation mark. Purists will immediately notice the lack of the apostrophe in the word 'let's' so you'll be pleased to know that I have now added it!
