Today, I was having fun playing with my Distress Inks. This ended up as a birthday card because that is what I need to replenish in my stash.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a panel of water color paper that I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. After that, I stamped my balloon outlines using Distress Inks. I didn’t worry about masking anything because I was hoping the balloons would look translucent in the end. After all the balloon outlines were stamped I added more color using the same Distress Inks as water color. I worked from the lightest color to the darkest color.
I added some water droplets for interest. I stamped the balloon strings in Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. The sentiment is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink.
I covered the front of my card base with some Lawn Fawn patterned paper and added the stamped panel on top.
