Hello there! Audrey here with a birthday card to share with you today! I started off by watercoloring a background for my card. I taped a piece of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock to a board and wet the paper. I tapped the Abandoned Coral Distress ink on my acrylic block, and added some water, and then did a watercolor wash on the wet paper to give a very subtle color. I wanted the bottom right of the cardstock to stay white to look like clouds. After it was dry, I diecut the watercolor piece with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches frame. I stamped and colored the hot air balloon, clouds and puppy from the WPlus9 Going Places stamp set, and then diecut them with the coordinating dies. I paper pieced the center of the balloon with Lawn Fawn Let's Polka Mon Amie patterned paper before popping it up with foam tape. I added the clouds with a glue pen, and stamped a sentiment and a few star clusters from the WPlus9 Wishing You stamp set. Then I popped the entire panel up on a coral card base using foam tape.
I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
