Watercolor Bonus Day
Jean Manis shared another video with us that gave a great lesson on watercoloring balloons. I've tried this before with no luck, but after watching her take on it, I was inspired to try again. This time, I think they turned out much better.
The balloon outlines are from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life, as is the "happy" in Happy Birthday and the confetti. I watercolored the balloons using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I die cut the Birthday in a beautiful blue and added it to yellow paper. Finally, I layered all this onto Gina K Designs Kraft cardstock base layer.
I like the way this turned out. After adding the confetti, it looks like a real fun card.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and comments very much. This class has been awesome, and I believe we've all learned a lot. See you again soon!
