Hi everyone it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Colleen has chosen a Summer theme. It's been very cold here as Winter has just started, so some summer warmth would be lovely!
You can always play along with our anything goes birthday theme too.
The DT and our party guest have some wonderful cards to inspire you, so I hope you can play along.
I seem to be stuck on a balloon theme lately! I thought this background from my stash looked summery and hot and would show off these shimmery balloons well.
The background was made by adding some oxide inks to a craft mat, spritzing with a little water, then smooshing on some glossy photo paper. When it was dry I wiped off the chalky residue from the oxide ink to reveal the bright summery colours!
The balloons are cut from some scraps of white shimmer paper, I never throw anything away!
I layered the diecuts on some black card to add a bit of shadow to help them pop off the background.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
