TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Balloons Make Me Smile!!!

Balloons up in our beautiful Blue sky here in Colorado always make me Smile.  It is Winter here now and we are so lucky to see the Balloons up every season.   THE WONDERFUL TOURISTS!!!! Tomorrow I am starting another Online Water Color Class (Intermediate) and I decided it would make a wonderful background for this Balloon.  I am planning to do a Pre Class Post this evening of the card.  

STAMPS:  TWO PAPER DIVAS  -  "You Are My Sunshine" (Located in the OTHER Category)
and the Sentiment "You Make Me Smile".  The Sunshine set is an older set but one of my favorites!!

INK:  Versafine - Onyx Black

CARDSTOCK:  Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor (Textured Side)

PIECING:  Simple Stories - I Heart Summer & Tim Holtz Linen Ribbon for a piece on the basket of the Balloon

WATER COLOR:  Kuretake Gansai Tambi

There is always such a final touch when you splatter ink.  When I used the Linen Ribbon on the basket of the Balloon I stretched it (on purpose) and it made it very open weave.  Almost like the Balloon has a very used basket!!



  1. Beautiful! Love the soft background with the dark color splatter.

  2. Carryn - Love the card...still one of my favorite sets as well. Love the watercolor background and the sequins add a touch of fun!
