Hello! Rachel here from RBergfeld Card Designs with some fun inspiration for Challenge 13!
For this card, I chose the middle row - Shimmer, Border Stamp, and Balloon.
I'm trying to create more one layer cards for easier mailing, so that's what I started with for this piece. I cut and folded my card base and then began by stamping all of my balloon images. I used two different ink colors - Fog Gray and Pale Blush Pink from Simon Says Stamp. I love how light and ethereal they look! I knew I wanted the cluster of balloons to be greater near the top, so I started by stamping just a few at the bottom and slowly working my way toward the top by increasing the number I was stamping. I added the strings in after all my balloons were stamped.
The confetti image is actually a small border stamp that I repeatedly stamped side by side to cover the top. I stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with some Rose Gold embossing powder. It's super shiny and pretty in person!
I finished the card by stamping my sentiment in a bold black ink so it would stand out beautifully.
I hope you like my card and it inspires you to create your own masterpiece for our challenge!
