Colorful Birthday Balloons

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Balloons, Distress Oxides, Birthday
I can't seem to stop playing with Distress Oxides on glossy paper.  Kecia Waters on the blog today, sharing a couple of birthday cards as a result of this playing.

It is so much fun playing with Distress Oxides and water on my craft mat.  I simply smooch the various colors of Distress Oxides onto my craft mat and spritz with water.  I then take a piece of glossy cardstock and pick up the pools of color.  I heat set the paper and then repeat the process of picking up the pools of color and heating until I achieve results that I like.  Then I rub Distress Micro Glaze across the paper, and the colors become quite vibrant and bright.

I thought cutting some balloons from the results of my play would make for some colorful birthday cards.  I used the AJVD Balloon Trio Die Set to cut the balloons.  I arranged the balloons onto white cardstock.  The various birthday sentiments from the AJVD Happy Birthday Stamp Set worked beautifully on these cards, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  A few white sequins complete the finishing touches on both cards.  I just love the fun colors of these balloons!  Makes for the perfect, quick birthday cards!
