For the Less is more #220 challenge I created a scene with balloons.
At first I used a different sentiment and stamped it in blue and then drew the strings of the balloons in with a black Sharpie and that ruined it :-(...it was too stark and too busy.
I then started another card and stamped some bears on clouds with no line colouring method...blah...
I then returned to this and I like it now...I just wasn't a happy bunny today I guess, because another card for another project also took a few runs...anyway:
I made a stencil for the balloons by diecutting circles and then cutting out the little tail things by hand.
I sponged Distress inks into the openings, making the bottom darker.
I mounted the Happy birthday curved onto my block so it looks like it's waving in the wind.
I've added Wink of stella and glossy accents on top of each balloon. Die cut some puffy clouds from Memory Box as if the balloons are up in the air.
Haven't added any embellishments as to keep it as CAS as possible and the glossy accents and Wink of stella are kind of my embellishments.
