Sparkly balloons


     Today I have a birthday card to share with you using a whimsical balloon stamp from Purple Onion Designs.  I stamped the balloon several times using the masking technique and then watercolored them.  I also splattered a bit of the watercolor around on the card and added some Wink of Stella to them.
     For the sentiment I scored an area large enough for the stamp (also from POD) and masked it off from the splattering.


     I'm sending these balloons out to you all.  Celebrate whatever!
Tracy
