18th Birthday

Morning all - thought I would just take a couple of minutes to blog this card.  I was struggling to come up with an idea for an 18th birthday card for a girl and in the end - thanks to a couple of suggestions from fb friends this is what I came up with . - me and masking ---again.

I decided to use the Claritystamp balloon to frame my letters so I had to stamp each one, then emboss and then mask before I could go onto the next one and the balloon as a ribbon attached - you can see some of it in parts  so the masking became very important - lol.  I then coloured them in with probmarkers before adding the numbers and letters - Clarity again .  I stamped the champagne glasses - Inkwell stamps - and the word celebrated together with the twiddles and stars - no idea whose stamps - had them ages.

I then laid the trellis mask from Clarity over the top (after masking off the balloons - again and the wine glasses) and used victorian velvet distress ink to add a background.

I added glossy accents to the bubbles and the balloons and left to dry..............and then...............Oh no....................I dropped a box right on top of the glossy accents balloons ...............the air wasn't blue ...honest.

So I picked myself, dusted my self off and started all over again !
