Colorful Birthday Balloons Card II (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'm sharing four cards with you, all in separate posts through the day. All my posts are scheduled and will go live every full odd hour, from 3 PM to 9 PM. This is my 3rd post today. If you missed previous two, just scroll down or follow direct links here and here. :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Colorful Birthday Balloons Card II. :o)

I made this card for my landlords' son, who will celebrate 3rd birthday next week. :o)

To make this card I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stamp. :o) Yes, again. I love it!!! :o)

I stamped the image on a Kraft paper panel and colored it with colored pencils. I went with coloring on Kraft with colored pencils again, as I did on my card from last week, but I colored a bit different (less layers of color). I blended colors using paper stumps and baby oil. After couple hours of drying, I colored a shade around the image with a white pencil.

Then I stamped a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Belated Birthday' stamp set on the panel and shaded letters with white pencil.

Lastly, I drew line frame border with fine tip marker, glued the panel on a white top folded card base and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 90 mm x 123 mm (3 9/16" x 4 7/8")
