Watercolour Balloon Celebrations

Hi Crafters!

You may have noticed that I've been hitting up the same stamp set a lot lately! This is part of my new catalog resolution as so many of my unused stamp sets retired at the end of May. So this catalog, I am determined to get a suite or a set a time & use it a lot! The best bit is you get to see all the different ways each set can be used & how versatile they all are! So here is another Balloon Celebrations card, using the little whispy flowers from the set. I have used the single balloon streamer for the stem.

I have heat embossed Watercolour cardstock with Iridescent Ice embossing powder (now retired, but you could get a similar effect with the clear embossing powder), using Versamark & the Heat Tool. For the cleanest results, rub the cardstock with the Embossing Buddy first, it's full of anti-static powder so the embossing powder will only stick where you've stamped.

I have then used the Spritzers to dampen the cardstock, then wiped an Acetate Window Sheet across the Mint Macaron ink pad & Spritzed the Window Sheet so the ink was runny. Next, just wipe the Window Sheet all around the Watercolour cardstock & repeat until you get the desired effect. The heat embossed parts resist the ink & the colour of the cardstock shows through. I have used white cardstock, but you could also use a colour cardstock & then ink it in a different colour or shade. You can also use the Aqua Painters for a softer, paler look.

After the paper was dry (I used the Heat Tool to speed up the process, flipping the paper over occasionally to reduce the amount of waves in the cardstock - you can also iron the cardstock after to flatten it on a low heat), I heat embossed the sentiment with the new Copper embossing powder.

I have placed the Watercolour cardstock onto a Crumb Cake base using Dimensionals. I have lined the inside of the card with Whisper White cardstock & stamped the same sentiment in Mint Macaron.

I have entered this card into the Crazy Crafters Team Highlights for this week. See all the entries & vote for your favourites here from 6.30pm Friday 10 June 2016. Voting will be open for a week.
