congratulations Becca you Crafty Gal

I made this card to share with those crafty gals and to say congratulations to my pink teamie Becca Cruger for a well deserved appointment on the crafty gals design team.

I couldn't make a card for Becca, the Damsel of Distress Cards without using distress inks so I got some bubble wrap inks and water and had great fun making these backgrounds

I chose the bottom right one, the clear line was a happy accident but when I saw it I thought great place for a sentiment, now if only I could work out how to do it again ;).

I cut a circle from the background, paper pieced some ballons... just for a change;) and gold embossed a sentiment and added the strings with a glue pen.

I'm disappointed with how the colouring of the balloons turned out, I used metallic pro markers, New lesson learned, colour before sticking and then you can change out if unhappy.

Anyhoo big congrats Becca well deserved x There is a fab blog hop going on over at the Crafty Girls Corner sites, get your tush over there as they have some great individual candy giveaways as well as the challenge.

Thanks for looking

  3. Tracey! You are the biggest sweetheart ever! I LOVE it. I think the balloons look grungy and cool! As far as the happy accident, maybe laying down a strip of washi tape prior to inking? I am feeling very blessed to have such amazing bloggy people in my life. :)
