Happy Birthday

Another card for the bonus day homework in the OCC - Watercoloring for Cardmakers.  This was done with a technique that Jean demonstrated.  I need more practice with this one.  I used the colors from this week's Color Throw Down:

I used a balloon die from Clearly Besotted, watercolor pencils and Distress Inks for the balloons.  The strings are from the companion Clearly Besotted stamp set.  The Hero Arts sentiment is embossed with Hero Arts detailed white embossing powder.

Thanks for coming by!


  1. Super cute and simple design! The glitter adds the perfect touch to those balloons.

  2. This is fabulous! Great idea to use this color combo for the balloons!

  3. Super cute card Harriet. Love those balloons and the touch of sparkle on them. Great way of using the colors. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
