I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far! Mine has been busy but productive as well. I have a simple birthday card to share with you today. I wanted to use some more muted and neutral colors with this design. I chose Iced Spruce distress ink and Green Leaf, and Lipstick Red from Simon Says Stamp for the balloons from Altenew's "Birthday Greetings" stamp set.
I did some masking; and after some trial and error finally got the balloons the way I wanted them. Masking is one of those techniques that admire a lot...but have such a hard time actually doing it!
To coordinate with the the balloons, I chose Kraft for my card base and then Ocean Tide, New Leaf and Pure Poppy from PTI. I added "Happy Birthday" sentiment beneath the balloons in Iced Spruce and then heat embossed the bottom sentiment with versamark and white embossing powder. Finally, I added some simple final details: white gel pen, stickles and some wink of Stella clear glitter pen over the balloons.
