Today its my birthday and I’m celebrating with a day at the seaside. This card is one I’d like to receive myself and I’m really pleased how well the colouring turned out using the Stampin’ Blends.
The Hand-Delivered hostess stamp set is probably my favourite from this years selection. With cute images you can make cards for a variety of occasions and when you add in the colouring options available the combinations are endless.
To be honest I wasn’t sure where to start when colouring the balloons to make them look realistic, so I copied the shading from the image in the catalogue and just changed the colours to ones I liked.
The highlights on the balloons was created using the Colour Lifter and I love how its made a translucent effect. I think my balloons turned out okay for a first attempt, what do you think?
