As part of the celebration of Art Impressions 32nd birthday, their monthly challenge this month is Birthdays! I chose to make a card with their Birthday Wishes stamp set. I paired it with a color combo from the July Daring Card Makers challenge, though I didn’t follow their challenge requirements, so I’m not submitting to them. I did a little bit of masking on the balloons, and then colored all the images with Tombow markers and a water brush. If it were not for the card panel being matted on a kraft card base, this would be a one layer card.
My dad and brother both have January birthdays, which I am notorious for not acknowledging with a card. I think I go into a post-holiday coma or something. LOL Anyway, I decided to be proactive and make their cards early.
ETA: This card placed in the Top 3 at Createful Heart Design!
