A Rainbow Array of Balloons

Hello friends.  I'm glad you could stop by!

I've used my balloon punches and dies to cut various sizes of balloons
from Mixed Media paper and colored them by swiping my Zigs
around the outer edge and spreading the color with a water brush.

When dry I temporarily adhered them to a scrap of cardstock,
smacked them with a Versamark pad and heat embossed with clear powder.

After laying the balloons on some sparkly paper to check for placement,
I stamped the happy birthday and some swirls from the other
words in this set in coordinating colors for the strings.

I've popped the balloons up for dimension.

I'm taking this to the Seize the Birthday 200th Challenge Celebration.
I have been inspired by the colors and the balloons.
Congratulations to Seize the Birthday!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I love that heart balloon and all the great colors. Even the strings are pretty. I missed WCMD altogether so I am happy to see what others made. Your slimline cards are both lovely and the designs on both are great on your previous post.

What a fantastic card Bonnie and love your different colours of balloons and strings, and the centre one with the sentiment is a great design idea. x

I have decided that Zigs are something I need to put on my wish list! I have two and never think to pull them out. The bright colors that you achieved on those balloons is so eye catching! Love the font strings too! Thanks for playing along at Seize the Birthday for our 200th challenge!

Your card is so joyful and fun. It will improve the mood in any situation, not only to the person who receives the card. We also got a dose of color therapy :-) Thanks a lot
