Birthday Wish Balloon

Hi Everyone!


Welcome back! I hope you all had a great weekend, mine was nice and relaxing, we went to the movies and watched The Jungle Book, which we all enjoyed!



Let's get right to today's card, shall we? I wanted to create a card with some fun summer colors; and I also wanted to play with a bit of texture paste. I pressed my Salty Ocean distress ink pad on to my craft sheet and then scooped some texture paste on top of it and used my palette knife to mix it all together. I adhered the Large Dots Stencil from SSS to a piece of Vintage Cream (PTI) card stock. I set that aside to dry and made the front panel with the balloon, which is from Up, Up and Away (Verve) in Memento  Tuxedo Black Ink and also stamped a separate one on to a piece of masking paper. I masked the balloon and stamped the cloud so it would be behind the balloon. I colored both of them with my Prismacolor Pencils: Aquamarine, Pink, Sprng Green for balloon and Cloud Blue for the clouds. I added the sentiment, also from Verve and then adhered the front panel as shown to the stenciled background. For final embellishments, I added some sequins along the left side.


That is all for me today. I hope your week gets off to a great start and I will see you again on Wednesday!
