Creating Simple Embellishments - Who's to Say Card

Hello BPM Fans,
Karen here to share a quickie card! Let's make a simple embellishment with major impact.

Other Supplies:
  • Pattern paper
  • Black permanent ink pad
  • Watercolor paints
  • White gel pen
  • Transparency
  • 5x7" card base
  • Clear mounting block 
  • Foam tape
1. Stamp the hot air balloon onto white cardstock using permanent black ink. Color in the image with watercolor paints. When dry, use a white gel pen to add highlights to the balloon.  Carefully cut out the colored images. You will have 3 pieces: the balloon, the basket, and the clowns.

2. Stamp the image again unto transparency and set aside to thoroughly dry.
3. Next assemble and adhere the balloon, basket, and clowns over the transparent image with foam tape. This will allow the ropes that hold the balloon to the basket to be visible.  Stamp a sentiment using black ink and matte it with a thin border of black cardstock to form a flag.

4. Adhere a piece of pattern paper to cover the entire front of the card base and adhere the balloon and sentiment.
