Happy Birthday Balloon

Hi there,

we are starting a new Challenge over at Moving along with the Times and we would like to see die cut numbers, letters or words on your project:

  • stamp the little girl and the balloon from the Mama Elephant Carried away stamp set with Versafine (Onyx Black) onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper
  • draw in the balloon string with a black PITT Artist Pen 
  • color the images with Art Grip Aquarelle, Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush
  • add shadows and a sky background with PanPastels (Payne's Grey, Phthalo Blue Tint)
  • die cut numbers from the main panel using My Favorite Things Little Numbers
  • cut out part of the balloon
  • add a piece of turquoise glitter paper behind the panel and puzzle the missing number pieces back in
  • stamp the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Stamps Many Mini Messages with Versafine (Onyx Black) into the balloon
  • add a thin black paper strip between the main panel and the glitter background

I hope you got inspired.
