Hello Everyone!

I am back with another project, but this time I am going to use their Circle Burst stencil! I knew when I saw this stencil, there were going to be a lot of big and shiny balloons to celebrate a birthday!

Grabbed three of my distress oxide inks in spiced marmalade, worn lipstick and peacock feathers and my distress blending brushes and got my card stock panel ready for my stencil.


I made sure I taped my panel down so it would not shift while I was applying my ink through the stencil. Using my blending brushes I made sure I always went in the same direction which provided a shadow along one side of my balloons. Make sure they overlap to give a sense of the center balloon is in front of the other two!

I pulled out my black fine liner pen and added my strings and bows to my balloons and a highlight mark with my white gel pen!

For my sentiment I used the Birthday Sugar Script die. This is a great large and bold sentiment to help the celebration shine! I used black card stock for the background die and a shimmer card stock for the sentiment itself!

I popped my sentiment up using my double-sided foam tape and placed along the bottom edge of my card design with enough space to set my other two sentiments above and below to finish my wish!

I used my liquid adhesive to secure my panel to my standard A2 size top folding card base (4 1/4 inch x 5 1/2 inch).
