Welcome to the February MFT Birthday Project Challenge! Few things say “birthday” like a beautiful bouquet of balloons. For this month’s challenge, focus on a single bobbing balloon or cover your card in copious amounts of colorful images or die cuts.
Why do one balloon when you can fill your card front with them, right? That’s easy to do with Big Balloons Stencil. To begin, I stamped Balloon Strings Background on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with Cement Gray dye ink. I wanted the strings to be really subtle and this color ink worked perfectly. Next i stenciled balloons all over using bright colors (listed below).
Next I stamped the sentiment from Handwritten Happiness with Extreme Black hybrid ink and added a bunch of stars cut from Silver Sparkle card stock—some popped up on foam tape.
And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $50 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
