Today’s project is based on three challenges….. I know it’s a lot but they just seemed to fit together. First you have the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from the Paper Craft Crew. I chose the bottom line across: Lemon Lime Twist, Vellum & Birthday. The theme challenge from Just Us Girls is: Balloons. And last but not least is the color challenge from Sunday Stamps. I’m using the Birthday Wishes For You stamp which is in the Occasions Catalog. It’s easy to miss because it’s right in the front.
and here is my card:
I started with a piece of vellum that I heat embossed the sentiment with White EP. I colored the back with: Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Always Artichoke. Make sure you give the ink enough time to dry. Don’t ask how I know 🙂 . I sponged the layer behind the sentiment with Lemon Lime Twist.
I added the layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Sahara Sand front panel that was embossed with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic TIEF. Then added to the card stock base of Always Artichoke. The Balloon Bouquet punch was used for the balloons. I added texture by rubbing the end of a paper piercing tool on the balloons on a paper piercing pad. Run the tool around and around the edge of the balloon and it creates a rounded edge. I added some chalk marker and Wink of Stella to finish the balloons. The linen thread ties the balloons together and the Tutti-Fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins finish the card.
I used some of the extra balloons for the inside of the card.
