Happy Birthday - Craftaholics R Us #14

Wednesday April 4, 2018
Welcome to our first challenge for April.. The Green team has a great challenge for you at Craftaholics R Us #14
and the theme is Happy Birthday
Time for another birthday card. I love when the challenge is for something I know I will need in the near future. I wanted to make this more masculine but with the background paper it could be feminine also. Really it could be for either. I used Oxide inks and stamped the Simon Says balloons. I stamped each balloon 3 times to try to get good coverage. I then went to another color and stamped it again 3 times. I then used white ink and stamped the string and sentiment. I heat embossed in white powder and where the white powder got on the balloons I just left because it kinda looked like highlighting. If I realized before hand I was going to emboss I would of used my static bag.. I cut the piece down and added to the background designer paper.

AAA #112 - favorite tech. (oxide ink on dark paper with a little spritz of water. Then embossing with white to pick up just a little of the wet areas.)

That looks so cool - if I got a card like that in the mail, I would just be studying it and trying to figure out how it was done! Thanks for joining the HeARTful Stamping Challenge!
