I'm delighted to be guest designing for Twofer Card Challenge #35. It just so happens I'm drawn to balloon images, although I don't seem to use them very often.challenge blog.
For the sentiment I die cut MFT Block Happy Birthday. I stacked the letters a couple high & colored each letter of "happy" with the ink matching the balloon it was attached to. I left the word "birthday" white & attached it to a black strip.
My second card is very CAS. I stamped the balloon without the outline 3 times in candied apple--allowing just a bit of overlapping. Recently I saw some cards that had balloons without strings, so thought I'd give it a try.
The sentiment stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne is in a very old, unlabeled MFT set. I added 3 tiny Gina K black heart embellishments & rounded the corners. Decided against splatters or glitter & I do like the fresh, clean look.
I'd love to see you join the gallery for this fun challenge. Maybe you've got an unused balloon image that needs some love!
