Balloon Birthday card and ShinHan markers.

Happy Everything stamp set from CTMH.
I first stamped the balloons slightly overlapping them. I also masked off the bottom of the stamp with a scrap piece of paper, because I wanted to draw the strings in later.

As I colored in the overlapping balloons, I also overlapped the colors, as shown.

There was no pattern to the colors I chose.

After all the balloons were colored in, I added the sentiment.

I then hand drew in the balloon strings, being careful to not draw over the sentiment.

Using the chisel tip of the marker I created confetti.

I made the confetti thicker at the top and thinner as it got closer to the bottom. I also made some confetti on the balloons.

These are the completed images before I cut them down and mounted them onto the card.

I used the green marker to create a boarder around the image before matting it on black cardstock.

Here are the completed cards.
