Celebration Time at Craftaholics R Us

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Wednesday!

Thanks for stopping by. Today I am joining the Craftaholics R Us Design Team as a floater. This is perfect for me since I want to craft more, find guest designer spots, but still not have to worry if I miss one challenge because of a school engagement. 

This Week's Challenge...
~ Celebration Cards ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I love creating backgrounds with watercolors since every one is unique, and this one used my new Tim Holtz oxide inks (worn lipstick, wilted violet, and broken china) and a Pentel waterbrush.

I used the Freshly Made Sketches layout for my card.
I used my blending tool and added oxide inks to white cardstock. I misted a bit of water and after it dried splattered a few drops of white paint. Then, I cut out the three balloons with my Cameo.

 Sometimes I like to use craft thread since it is thin and comes in a variety of colors. The ribbon is by Melissa Frances (bought it at the Scrapbook Expo last year).

The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.
Hope you will join us at Craftaholics R Us this week for our "Celebration Cardschallenge. Be sure to check out the other craftaholics.
