Saturated Canary Challenge - Shabby Chic

Hello my lovelies how are you all?
Well we have a brand new challenge over at Saturated Canary this week, these weeks sure are flying by fast!!
This week it was my turn to set the theme, so I went for my favourite..............
...........yes its SC at SC.....(shabby chic at saturated canary), I lurve shabby chic so I thought I would try something new.
I have made a card & matching gift type thingy for my new grandchild Arjay ;0) I've seen one of these somewhere on Pinterest, cant remember where & didnt know if there was even a tutorial so had a go at different things & finally worked out how to do it................yay me.....
I've also used my fave SC image, yep def still my fave & is fab for lots of occasions ;0) 
Can you tell whats next to the card yet??????
It was hard to photo so sorry for any bad piccies....

I've made a Hot Air Balloon............ I am quite proud of this tbh & I hope Megan & Ben will like it & hang it in Arjays room..............well when he goes into his own room.
The larger pearl hanging in the middle is a Tim Holtz 'Bauble' I also added a home made 'Angel' to the chain.

I have added 3 'Angels Among Us' by Melissa Frances to the balloon, Arjay is our little miracle so the angels represent that. The bells are kind of like sand bags that you get on the basket as weights lol. I also added MF 'Pleated Ribbon', Flat Pearl String & the little feet I made myself out of plaster.

This is the card to match for our little Arjay, I wanted to wait to give cards & gifts til Arjay came home cus then I was welcoming him home. 

Lace & ribbon are from my stash. Flowers are form WOC & I added gesso to them. The banner I made from La La Land Crafts 'Heart Banner' die. 

The image is the beautiful 'Butterfly Baby' digi image but for all you rubber fans this is also available in rubber as well now ;0) The image has been coloured with Copics, colours used below.
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E57, E55, E53, E51 - Hair
B97, B95, B93, B91 - Blue part of clothes & wings
C3, C1, C00 - White-ish part of clothes & wings
I also added 'Cheese Cloth' under the image.

The resin image thingy I also made quite a while ago & neglected him, I also have a little girl. I dabbed gesso around the edge of the little boy for a shabbier look to it.

The papers I've had forever & only ever used 2 sheets I think lol but the colours were fab for this project so I used it. The pad is First Edition 'Up Up & Away', not sure where to get it from as I have had this since it was released. I've also inked up the papers with Pumice Stone distress ink & they have been machine stitched. I've also added Melissa Frances Pearls to the corners of the card.

This looks sooooooooo much better in real life, I will try get a better photo of the balloon as it really is quite hard to photo. Alos I will look for the pin on pinterest that gave me the inspiration, it was ages ago but I would like to credit where its due.

Anyway thats it from me, hope you made it to the end lol. As always all highlighted words will take you directly to the products used.

Thanks for stopping by, big squishy hugs to all mmwah
