Little Critter

Welcome back - this post is my second for this week releases from McMahon Five Design.com.

This image is one in a series called Funny Little Things by Studio 313 - the image is named Birthday Happiness


There is a lot of sparkle on this card that the camera did not pick up.


The image was printed out on Cryogen curious metallic paper which has a subtle sheen that shows through any medium, and painted with twinkling H2Os - don't you love his crooked wee smile?


Here is a close-up of the balloon, and I highlighted it with some crystal stickles, which were also used on the balloons on the designer paper.


The final touch, which proved to be the most difficult, was to layer the image over these sheets of shiny 'holes'.  They show purple IRL, but the camera picked up a more aqua tone :-(.

Thanks for calling, and please feel free to be inspired by the rest of the Design Team at McMahon Five Design.com - the links to their blogs are all in the sidebar.

  7. Adorable. The balloons all down the sides are such a lovely 'frame' for the main image, and I think the bling really adds to it nicely.
