Hi Friends,

This is my really long day, so you won't see me until later.  I will fill you in tomorrow what is happening.  until then, I will leave you with this really fun card that I did yesterday while I had my PTI up up and away stamp set out.  I'm so glad I worked on this because I have been needing to get some watercolor paintings done and this is a nice small way to get back into it.  When I look at a full sheet of water color paper I have the equivalent of writers block-- you writers know exactly what I am talking about.  My card measures 4.25 x 5.5


 Here is a close-up of the balloons-- I love the way they came out



I used PTI stampers select white, watercolor paper for the  balloons. They are die-cut then embossed and then watercolor painted using  Jenni Bowlin re- inkers. I used blueberry sky for the mat liner. I used 3_d pop dots for the balloons I wanted them to look like they were floating.
The embossing powder I used is CI paints Deliquesce white.
