Birthday Balloons Card II (LMMS Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

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

I was a bit uninspired and had no idea what to make, so I decided to use again an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stamp, that is now available as digital image. How awesome is that!! I'll surely use digi too in my future projects, as it can be resized. :o)

This card is 6th card I made using the 'Celebrate Balloons' rubber stamp. This is my most used stamp. :o) You can find my previous cards using this stamp here, here, here, here and here. :o)

I went with similar design as on my previous cards using this stamp, so it's kind of a CASE. For a color combination I decided to use same colors as on my last week's LMMS card (find it here): black-grey-yellow-white. Love this color combo!!! :o)

I stamped the image on a thick watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I stamped the image one more time on a top folded white card base and colored it with black marker. Then I fussy cut watercolored image, traced edges with black marker, glued foam scraps on each piece of the image and glued them over the black image.

Lastly, I heat embossed in white a sentiment on a black cardstock paper stripe, glued foam scraps on each piece of the sentiment, glued them on card and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 127 mm (3.5" x 5")
