Pastel Happy Birthday to You Balloons
These big sentiment balloons were stamped with Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Inks. I used Copic Markers to add some shading to the bottom, but they didn't blend well, so once they were cut with the coordinating die I used a small blending brush to smooth out the shading. The dies were used to cut sticky back foam, which was trimmed down to be slightly smaller. The front of a white cardbase was dry embossed to add visual interest behind the balloons, which were adhered in place with liquid glue.
I decided to add some gold bows to the bottom of the balloons and liked it a lot, but I felt they needed balloon strings, so small pieced of the told trim were cut and adhered in place with liquid glue.
