Whoop dee dooo!

I have a fun birthday box to share with you with some stepped out coloring instructions!

This box is a great size for a gift card or small gift.

To make this gift bag I started with a Large Square bag die cut from Creative Cuts and More. 
I placed three clear stamps on my block to make it easier and quicker to stamp all over the die cut bag with VersaMark ink.

After randomly stamping all over the bag with VersaMark I embossed the images with kaleidoscope embossing powder.

Then I put the bag together with Killer White Tacky Tape.

I colored my image, Balloon Kiddo, by Stampendous with Spectrum Noir Markers.

I started by stamping the  Balloon Kiddo image in Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink on a piece of smooth white paper.
I started with the lightest colors CT1-CG1-TB1-HB1-FS2-CT2

Then I added the darkest colors: CT4-CG4-TB4-HB3-FS9-GB9
I blended the lines together with a medium shade: CT2-CG2-TB3-HB2-FS7-GB8 (TB1-IG1-CG1 added to the clothing)
Finally I added TB2-CG2-IG2

 I punched grass out with my Fiscars border punch and adhered it to the bottom on the bog.
Then I fussy cut out the Balloon Kiddo and adhered him to the bag.
The sentiment is from Birthday Assortment Perfectly Clear Stamps

The finished project is a great way to present a gift card or small gift that any boy would love!
