Birthday card with masking
My inspiration came from the Concord & 9th stamp set, Happy Balloons. I love these happy Balloons and how easy it is to mask them for depth and decorate them. I decided Hero Arts Ombré Inks were the way to go on these Balloons. Ombré Inks have three colors in them so it automatically adds interest to solid stamped images.
When creating a foreground and background with a bunch of stamped images, first decide where your foreground image will be located. After stamping the first image, mask that off with some Inkadinakdo Stamp Masking Paper. I used the coordinating die set to cut out a small and large balloon. After masking the first balloon, I stamped the next balloon and continued until I had stamped all the balloons. Included with the set, are stamps that add decoration to the balloons. I stamped the large purple balloon and the teal balloon with Versamark and added WOW Copper embossing powder to make the designs stand out. For the other balloons, I added some Wink of Stella shimmer pen to add some shine and interest.
To finish the card, I drew on strings with my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I cut the card to 4 3/4" high and 4 1/8" wide and mounted the front panel onto a Hero Arts pre folded A2 notecard.
