Back to my card for today.


For this card I am using the Bloom Balloon (G20942) and the Butterfly Balloon (G20943). I first did the watercolour background for my slimline card in blue watercolour using Arches cold press paper. 

I then stamped 2 of the Bloom Balloon with Versamark embossing ink and gold embossing powder, then proceeded to watercolour the flowers and leaves.


I then stamped the Butterfly Balloon using the same, the Versamark and the gold embossing powder. Once heated I proceeded to give the butterflies a bit of watercolour.

I then fussy cut the 3 balloons to fit the background of my slimline card. One of the balloons was a tad too big, so I cut off the little bottom bit. Then I wondered if I should have done that!


To finish up I attached the watercolour blue background to my Ivory card base. I then glued in place the two floral balloons, and for the butterfly balloon I applied some foam squares to the back of the balloon, then attached.

I did not want to detract from the flowers, so I decided against any bling. I like the way the gold embossing adds that to the card.

Thank you for joining us today for Day 1 of the June Release. I will be back tomorrow for Day 2 and another new card.
