MFT July Release Countdown Day 5




It's time for My Favorite Things July Release Countdown!
There's a birthday theme running through this month's release because MFT
is celebrating 10 years in business! Join us and let's celebrate BIG!

I'm starting off with balloons, using the new Big Balloons Stencil which has five
balloon stencils on one sheet so you have a variety of styles to play with.


I overlapped each balloon and inked them with Distress inks in rainbow order.
I spattered on water and added highlights with a white pigment pen and a white
colored pencil, and I also drew in squiggly balloon strings.

I added the sentiment and a sprinkling of clear sequins. The panel was cut with the
rectangle element from Blueprints 29 and adhered to a Stone Gray card base
that was stamped with Balloon Strings background.

Stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things to see more peeks
of this month's release and leave a comment for a chance to win prizes!
Thanks for stopping by today!
