Celebration Balloons

One more quick card tonight. I was playing with My Favorite Things color challenge and Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.

I started with Strathmore watercolor paper and stamped the soft grey dots in the background. Then the small balloons with Distress Ink. I used a water brush to smooth out the color on the balloons. Stamped the celebrate and clear embossed over the blue ink. I then drew the balloon strings with a fine black marker and used Glossy Accents over the balloons for shine.  Last I mounted it on a soft grey card base.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
