For my project today, the design team is showcasing the Newton’s Birthday Balloons and the Newton’s Birthday Balloons coordinating dies.
As soon as I saw this stamp set, I immediately thought of creating a scene where Newton is floating up in the air with his balloons BUT I wanted the sky to look unique, than your regular blue and white! I also pictured glitter dust, everywhere!
I started with die-cutting my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, using the Sky Borders die set. I inked it up with Tattered Rose and Antique Linen distress oxide inks, with my mini ink blending tools.
To add the glitter dust on my background, I used my Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder in Perfect Gold and added it on a clear acrylic block with some water. I used my watercolor brush to sprinkle the color onto the card stock. This created some cute glittery-gold sparkle dust on my colored background.
To finish my design, I used my Clouds stencil that I created using the Sky Borders Die, and colored my card base using the Antique Linen distress oxide with my ink blending tool. I also heat-embossed the sentiment on black card stock and added some details to the balloons with my Sharpie White paint pen. Here’s my card:
Here’s another photo to show you the gold glitter dust:
