The theme for the March challenge #14 at Twofer Card Challenge is - Balloons
I thought I might go with Hot Air Balloons and have created a birthday card and a "Hi" card.
I used stencils and Distress Oxide inks to sponge in my background. Then stamped and used DO to watercolour my Hot Air Balloons and fussy cut them out. To finish I stamped on my sentiment and used foam tape to attach my balloons.
For my second card I sponged in my blue background using DO inks and masking off the bottom which I then reversed the mask and dragged red and orange DO pads across to form the 'table'. I used a stamp to add a diamond pattern - sort of eastern oriental, on which to display my "Genie Lamp" - I watercoloured the hot air balloon, fussy cut it and then added Dimensional Magic to give it a glassy finish. Then I added some white metallic paint with scrunched up plastic wrap and stamped a swirl over it and heat embossed with silver EP. To Finish I stamped on my 'wish' sentiment and then 'birthday' sentiment on a thin strip of white card and assembled the elements using foam tape on the 'bottle'.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy card making
