Clearly Besotted Teasers | Best Balloons

Hello there and welcome to the start of the Clearly Besotted April Teasers. The new products will be releasing on the 1st April at 8pm BST. From now until then, myself and the rest of the Clearly Besotted Design Team will be sharing teasers of the new sets with you. My card today uses the new Best Balloons set.

I started off my card by stamping three of the balloons from the set (the set is filled with lots of wonderful different design balloons) on to white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured the images using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section). I then fussy cut them out with scissors but there will be coordinating dies available for them to purchase.
I took a panel of white cardstock and masked of the edges with post-it tape. Using Distress Oxide Inks, I blended colour on the inside to create a background for my balloons. The post-it tape was then removed. I stamped the strings on to the background and then added the panel on to a white A2 card base with ATG. The balloons were then added on top with foam tape. I took the 'happy birthday' sentiment from the Tiny Type set and stamped this with Versamark Ink on to a strip of black cardstock. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was also added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Studio Katia Clear Round Drops to the background and black glaze pen to the balloon animal eyes.
