I've owned the Year Two stamp set from Lawn Fawn for years now but had never used it until this week. Now that I see how absolutely adorable it is I will definitely be using it again soon! I also had another revelation during this crafting session...I need the Party Ballon dies! Can you tell what I used to create my faux balloons?
To start off, I used distress inks in Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, and Chipped Sapphire to create a smooshed watercolor background. While that was drying I stamped my turtles from Year Two and colored them with copics before fussy-cutting them. Next I die-cut the round stitched tag dies and cut off the bottom of each die to create my "balloon." I colored them with copics and then stamped the sentiment inside. To finish the card I tied black twine bows to each balloon and used more twine and foam mounting tape to adhere the turtles and balloons to the watercolored background.
