It has been a good week as far as playing in challenges. One more today - a one layer cute birthday card that'll play in two challenges. One Layer is the topping at Seize the Birthday, and Cute is the one layer card prompt at Less is More this go round.
I had to alter the balloon, it was originally heart shaped, but I wanted more of a birthday feel than a Valentine feel, so I drew in a line to cleave the heart and added a balloon in the back and colored each one a bit darker than the front balloon which is fully outlined. I've also taken to coloring my image while it sits in the misti, so I can just stamp it again at the end to get nice dark crisp outlines. I love these sweet lil penguins from Gerda Steiner. I ordered the set in December, hoping I'd be able to play while in California...but it saw no ink until today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
