Watercolor Birthday…

Hello everyone!  I’m here with DoubleClick Skittles Design Team Challenge.  This month the theme is Anything Goes.

I decided to create a card for my Aunt’s birthday.

I use Simon Says Stamp Balloons Die to create a stencil for my balloons.  Then I used my retired Stampin Up! watercolor pencils to fill them in.

Take a look at my card:

Watercolor birthday

1. After I created the stencil, I traced the balloons with a pencil very lightly on to Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock that was die cut using Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Frames Die.

2. Then I used my color pencils and traced over the pencil mark.

3. For each balloon, I colored just the base and the side of the balloon.

4. Then I used my paint brush and water to pull the color from the side and base, to the rest of the balloon.

5. I stamp the strings to the balloons.

6. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons on a strip of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black cardstock.

7. To top of my card I added Pink Sherbert Skittles to my card front for added embellishment.

For those of you who are wondering about my skittles embellishments, the owner Carri, has put together a video to answer any question you might have regarding their size, color, and how to adhere them to your projects. Please click here for that video.

I love the colors of these balloons.  What do you think?  Please let me know.
