Happy Birthday Dude! - Dt post for LCC challenge Blog.

Hey guys
I have a DT inspiration post for you all today for the Let's Craft and Create Challenge blog. The theme for this month is Hey Dude! and so I have a birthday card keeping this theme in mind. This challenge runs for an entire month and you still have 2 weeks to put in your entries. Please click the link HERE to go the challenge blog.
I am putting this card up at the following blog challenges:
  1. Cards and more challenge #191- One Layer cards
  2. Addicted to CAS challenge#171 - One Layer Cards
  3. CWS challenge#17 - Boys to Men
  4. Addicted to stamps and more challenge#255 - Photo Inspiration - This picture has inspired me to do the layers of balloons on my card.
  5. Word Art Wednesday Challenge Week #296-297 - Anything Goes
  6. Scrapping4fun challenge #97- Anything Goes
This is a fairly simple card and it took me hardly 15mins to do this.So I started with a standard A2 size card base in white and stamped balloons on it using 4 different distress inks...all in the shades of blue....Tumbles Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty ocean and Faded Jeans. I stamped the same image with different colors in each row. You can add more rows with more shades but I had 4 shades and so I did 4 rows.
What's the fun of using distress inks without a little water... so I sprinkled a little water and waited for the magic to happen. Lifted the water with a tissue napkin and dried my card with a heating tool.
Then, I added silver strings to my balloons with a silver sparkle pen....but i did not press my pen too much and lightly drew all the strings using a t- ruler.
To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment with versamark and Black embossing powder from Wow. Sprinkled some fun sequins to give it a little hit of sparkle.
So here I finish my quick and easy birthday card...I hope you liked it and will give it a try. Thank you for reading this post and have a great day ahead.
