Newton's Nook Designs March Release Day 2


Hello again and welcome to day 2 of the March Release here at Newton's Nook Designs.  Today, continuing on with a fun birthday theme, we've got this SUPER FUN Balloon Shaker Die Set and a coordination stamp set called, Uplifting Wishes.


Today I used the portion of the balloon die set that you may cut your acetate layer with..or you can cut out to make balloons!  I inked up my balloons cut out of watercolor cardstock, then I spritzed them to get the color to run a bit.  I should mention that I heat embossed the sentiment in white on the middle balloon first.  As it dries, the color runs off the sentiment, and it really stands out!  I used the Bubbly Stencil on the background!


 So you might be thinking..what on earth is this?  Well, I had also cut out some of the shaker balloons for a project I'll show later in the week.  The inside of the balloon cut out for some reason just said flower petals to me.  So I distress inked and water splattered the leaves and petals and assembled this bold flower on some large check patterned paper on a 5x5 background.  I stamped the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes set right in the middle and glued some red cord under the circle center that I foam popped.  Just kind of a silly little project to use up some scraps, but I quite like how it turned out.  What do you think?
