Hi there everyone!
For this card, I finally inked up the gorgeous balloon background stamp from Create a Smile stamps. I’d wanted this stamp for a while and was so pleased to see it in stock when I placed an order with them earlier this month.
Anyway, I embossed it with white embossing powder and then set to colouring! I decided to try out the ‘Stained Glass Watercolour’ technique Jennifer McGuire showcased a few weeks ago. I decided to use distress markers. Not sure if it was me, but I found it quite difficult to move a lot of colour and went back to a number of balloons several times until I was happy with how they were looking… I have a few Tombow pens so I may try with them….
Once I was happy with the balloons, I had to cut the watercolour panel. I was a bit hesitant because I often change my mind about the design of a card when I’m assembling it….. However, I was following a sketch, so bit the bullet and cut! I ended up making a birthday card with the other half.
I layered my panel onto some coloured card and finished off the card with a Hero Arts sentiment stamp.
Thanks for stopping by!
