Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: tie it up with Paper Smooches
I've used the Paper Smooches Balloons die on Marker friendly heavy cardstock as I first wanted to use my Spectrum Noir Markers.
Then I thought I'll ink them with Distress inks, which I did and whilst doing so I remembered the wonderful Jennifer Mcguire using Perfect Pearls to make faux metal panels on one of the videos this week, so I thought I'd try that to give my balloons some shine and it's gorgeous. I fixed the perfect pearl with some water.
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp's Birthday Balloons and I've heat embossed it with gold.
I've used matching metallic strings to tie my balloons to the sentiment
