It's another Crafty Cardmakers challenge, and our Hostess this week is Mynnette
She says 'My birthday is May 13th, so I'd like to see some projects with balloon images!!! :) Any type of balloon will do - hot air balloon, heliumballoon, balloon animal. And anything birthday will do, but I want a balloon on it :)
Now, I don't often do decoupage, but on this occasion I couldn't resist the teddy bearing balloons for a child's first birthday card.
The base card was a 7 x 5 inch plain white portrait folded card. I layered it with the balloon backing paper, which was from a Sharon Duncan cd, Country Kids.
The blue "1" was hand drawn (!) and cut out, and I distressed the edges with tumbled glass distress ink.
The teddy bearing balloons came from a diecut sheet I got in a create and craft goody bag, and I layered him up using pinflair gel.
Finally, the greeting and name was added using peel off stickers - sometimes, they come in very handy!!
