Gumball Inspiration ...

Mirth is God's medicine. Everybody ought to bathe in it!
 ~Henry Ward Beecher

Good morning!
Another bright and blessed day us upon us one and all!
I hope your week started off on a positive note and just gets better!

Today is Tuesday and the start of a new Color Challenge at The Outlawz and we have an inspiration picture for you taken by our very own Jacqui.

Isn't this the coolest picture? Of course the first thing that popped into my head was Gumballs! So that was what I went with for my card.

After I colored the balls, I fussy cut the image out. So that I would get that bumpy texture on the balls, I added Aleen's paper Glaze to a couple of the balls, let dry for a while, then cover a few more. I did this process until all the balls were covered then I set aside to thoroughly dry. 

Once I had the card together, I added the glaze to some of the circles on the background 

Card size iz 5 x 7
Aleen's Paper Glaze
Cardstock from The Paper Studio
Design paper "Birthday Circles" from the The Paper Studio
Embossing folder "Decorative Dots" from Stampin Up!

This is a fabulous card. Love the gumballs and the technique to make them stand out (glaze).
