AEIheartU Challenge #1

Good Morning!  Yesterday I played along with the AEIheartU Challenge blog and I wanted to share what I created.  This week's challenge theme is Happy Birthday. 

Here is the card I created:

I decided to try a new (to me) technique for this card.  I stamped the backgrounds twice, once using regular inks and once using Versamark and clear embossing powder.  For the top layer, I used watercolor paper because I love how the stamped image shows through.  I love the mix of bold and soft colors on this card.

That's all for now!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time...



  1. Oh wow!! I love this effect, too!! The soft water colors are so yummy, and the pop of those fun balloon animals just make me happy! Thanks so much for playing with us at the Avery Elle Challenge - we're so glad you did!!

  2. Such a fun card! I love how you stamped the balloon animal and lined them up on the card and the angled panel--such a neat effect! Thanks for joining our first AE Challenge and hope to see you again!

  3. What a cool technique! Those watercolors look amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the very first AE Challenge!! :)

  4. OHHH! This is a new technique for me too- I might have to try it! LOOOOOOOOOOVE!!! LOVE the colors and those little sequins! SUPER fab card:)
