Today, I used the birthday balloons from the Bebunni Celebration set as my main focal point. But to start this card off, I pulled in a color palette that I love!
I took a piece of the Shimmering Cardstock in Coastal Pearl and ran it through my machine using the Embossalicious Birthday Text embossing folder. You only see a peek of that behind the watercolored panel, but it adds a nice pretty color and texture.
I then stamped the birthday balloons with Versafine in Onyx Black onto the watercolored panel. I stamped a second set of balloons onto the Watercolor Cardstock and colored them in with Spectrum Aqua Markers (all products listed and linked below) to color them in. Such a fun way to bring in a lot of color fairly easily and quickly. After they dried, I fussy cut them out and adhered them right over the first group of balloons I stamped with some foam adhesive. Gives great dimension to your projects!
For the sentiment, I simply took a strip of the Watercolor Cardstock and stamped the two sentiments from the Bebunni Celebration set and stamped them next to each other and glued that strip to the bottom of the watercolored panel.
I encourage you to check out all the wonderful watercoloring items over at Crafter's Companion. It's such a beautiful way to add gorgeous results to all your projects. Happy crafting!
