Birthday Balloons for CAS Watercolour

Hi there.  It's time for a new challenge at CAS Watercolour.

Karen is hosting this month and she chose....

I've die cut and punched a couple of balloons out of Mixed Media paper
and used my Zigs and a waterbrush to color them up.

I put them on a background of Gelato Splash and
inked up a splatter stamp with the same Gelatos to let the splatters
spread to the card base.

The strings are from the ends of the sentiments from
Handwritten Border stamps.

You can't see it in the picture, but the balloons are
shined up with some Nuvo glaze and shaped.

Our talented friend, Bobby is joining us as
Guest Designer this month.  Be sure to check out her
wonderful design and the inspiration pieces from our super Design Team.
Then I hope you'll join us at
CAS Watercolour. 

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

A perfick birthday card for a child, Bon-Bon! You and Lolly both did colorful splatters on your backgrounds and that adds so much to a child's card while still keeping everything CASlicious! Making a mental note ... if only it doesn't slide down the back of my head and into my underwear like so many of my thoughts are doing these days, lol! See you soon!! Hugs, Dolly

A perfect idea for a child's card! Beautifully shaded balloon - and must be wonderfully shiny with the glaze on them.

Clever you to use sentiment squiggles for the balloon strings! This makes a fun card for a child's birthday. Love the multi-colored splatters and curvy sentiment.
