Today I have a birthday card to share with you. At Seize the Birthday a new challenge has started today. The Toppings option for next fortnight is
If you want to, you can choose Anything Goes and join us with any newly created birthday card!
For today's card I pulled out a Penny Black stamp called Betsy Bluebell which I purchased as I started card making. The little girl is too cute!
I started by stamping the girl with balloons and a single balloon with a ladybug on it on the Bristol Smooth panel. I used Versafine onyx black as I wanted to watercolor the images. I made a mask for the heart (cut with Cricut) and cut the masks for the stamped images. After masking the images, I blended the heart using Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feather DIs. The imgaes were colored using Zig markers. The sentiment is a part of a stamp from Birthday Borders set by Technique Tuesday. I curved the stamp along the outline of the heart, stamped it in Versafine onyx black and clear heat embossed it.
I die cut the panel slightly smaller than A2 size and foam mounted it on the yellow cardbase. To finish off I added Shimmer Pico Embellisher on the balloons, on the heart hair pins and on the shoes of the girl. Oh, and on the ladybug, too :).
That was my take on the Toppings option!!! Hope I could inspire you to create some birthday cards with balloons!!!
