Birthday cards are my favorite cards to make, and nothing says "Happy" like a big bunch of balloons! I gave this cutie pie from Lovely Pandas a whole lot of balloons to hold by stamping and masking just the balloon of the image. I stamped the panda separately and cut off the single balloon. I stamped everything with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I hand-drew the strings with a black pen and fussy-cut both images.
To keep the focus on the panda and balloons, I kept the background pretty simple. I used a cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink for the sky and green Copics for the grass. I stamped a sentiment from Happy Hoppy with Versafine Onyx Black and adhered the panel to a white card.
I popped up the colored images with foam tape and added highlights with a white gel pen. For some sparkle, I adhered clear sequins and brushed Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay onto the balloons.
Have a wonderful day!
