Nerd Boy Balloon

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day!  In addition to remembering your loved ones, I hope you are able to celebrate the holiday with family and friends.  We have a new sketch for you at From the Heart Stamps, along with a new twist "Show Off Your Coloring Skills"; here's the sketch:

I would have done a 1 layer card with a colored image in the right lower corner, but since I'm without a printer right now (thank goodness for the printing service at the library!) I had to improvise and make use of the images I have printed and waiting to be colored.  I have several printed on a page and I would have needed to pre-plan the layout, so I did the next best thing...cut a hole so I could slip my image between the layers and let it peek out.  It worked!  Faith's adorable new image is colored with pencils and I've added some Glossy Accents to his glasses...I really do need to remember to use this more the raised shine!  I've embellished with banners, a button, and some twine.  Here's a close-up:

Hi Angela, your little nerd boy looks gorgeous, not sure if it is a reflection or not but his glasses appear to have a blue tint to them, reminded me of one of those nerdy kids from high-school... thank you for the inspiration... Megan
