I'm continuing with an idea I shared last week on THIS post, using what was sold as a Christmas stamp set in a different way.
Well, I have another version of that idea today.
I made this--
She's colored with Zig Clean Color Watercolor markers, and I added highlights with a white gel pen.
I stamped this balloon background right on my card base in colors that sort of related to her outfit without matching exactly. As I explained last week, I want the image to merely relate to the background, rather than getting lost in what I call "visual wash." Yes, I DO make up words..
I die cut the birthday word from some glitter cardstock (which actually is from a Christmas stack, btw). I white heat embossed the "it's your" on a hot pink cardstock scrap, and then dry embossed that for some texture. I like that the strip sort of gives her something to stand on, as well.
I added enamel dots to tie in all the colors (because that pool color wanted HELP), and that was that.
Stay tuned! I have one more in this idea, which looks TOTALLY different. I'll tease you by saying July birthday people will love this one, especially...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
