Hi everyone! Happy Monday!
Today I’m so excited to be joining in with the folks at Clearly Besotted Stamps for their May release! I have been waiting for *ages* for Steph to ask me to join in as a Guest Designer and was starting to think she’d never ask, lol!
For today’s card I decided to play with the fun Let’s Party set:
This set is so much fun! The balloons are solid but I decided to play with some Distress Inks to get that watercoloured look!
I inked the balloons concentrating round the edges, misted with water then stamped on my cardstock, then used a wet paintbrush to drag the colour in to fill the images.
Once dry I added some splatter then stamped the balloon strings and sentiment. I added a few sequins to complete everything. This card is ready to party!
Please do pop over to the Clearly Besotted blog to check out what Steph and the DT have created and make sure you come back tomorrow for more Clearly Besotted fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Love this, Taheerah. I love the soft colours. Funnily enough, I have used the same technique with this set too, but with rather different look (sharing later in the week) I love yours!
