I have to start by saying I CASEd this from a card by Monika Davis. I think I changed it enough to make it my own though. I am a bit disappointed with the Glossy Accents that I spread over the balloons. They seem to have yellowed the colour of the paper underneath. It did end up being a thick layer which I think added to the yellowness but maybe my Glossy Accents has been in the sun too long? I never though about keeping it in the dark. Hmmm…
The background was stencilled with transparent embossing paste and a tiny bit of white glitter was sprinkled over while it was still wet. I think it made for a subtle but sparkly background with some textural interest.
I hope you will join in the celebrations at Paper Sweeties this month.
