Balloon Fun

Party Balloons Challenge

Using a set of dies from MFT called Balloon stax, I cut 3 shapes out of paper scraps after which I added liquid glass to give some dimension. I did a few things backwards making this card. Firstly I should have chosen brighter papers for the balloons and I added the gloss before figuring to add some fun to the shapes. I decided to try to add the fun faces over the top of the gloss using an older SSS set. To my surprise it worked although I did go over the image with a pen to fill in a few places that were uneven. The smallest balloon I did by hand and am chuckling at my effort with the mouth. It looks like bat wings lol. Should have used a finer pen for this but too late to fix now. The background piece uses a stencil called sunrays and I inked it with Distress Oxide Ink in mustard seed letting it fade to the edges of the paper. I mounted this piece onto a scrap gold piece and in turn added to the card front. Positioned the balloons and drew in the strings before popping them up on foam tape for more dimension. The sentiment comes from another SSS set called Lifting Hearts. At first I wasn’t sure I liked this card but have since decided it is not bad. Am adding to the Double D challenge, but I’ve also got another one finished for this challenge too.

    1. Thanks Gayle. Of course one thinks of better ways to do something after the fact. Lots of lessons in this one.


  1. This is a fun little card, the faces you added to the balloons are priceless! The sunburst stenciled background looks great too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D as we celebrate our 6th year. Great entry for our Balloons Challenge, Donna, DT Member.

  2. This is a fun one! I like your hand drawn face. I always put the creases at the sides of the mouth when I’m drawing faces, so it looks right to me.
