Paru's Cardmaking Challenges - Birthday
Good morning! I'm so excited to tell you that I am the July Guest at Paru's Cardmaking Challenges! This month's theme is Birthday.
I was inspired by Donna's card here. And I made quite a few panels before I managed to settle on a colour combination, good spacing and to get everything masked, sponged and stamped properly!
I cut the balloon out of masking paper (one for each colour) and used the negative space, distress ink and a swirling motion to fill in with a lighter centre, which gives a bit of dimension. I spritzed the balloons for more texture and interest. I knew that some bold black would give this pretty card a graphic feel. And of course, you can't have a birthday without some sparkle!
