A Bunch of Balloons

My project for the Bubbly Funk Blog this week is this bunch of heart shaped balloons, made using a Memory Box stencil and lots of inks and paints.

I apologise for the photo - it was an absolute mare to photograph; the basic card has a soft pearlescent finish and I just couldn't get the lighting right 

There is a bit more info on how I made this and what I used over on the Bubbly Funk Blog - there are so many layers of ink and paint that I can't quite remember all the things I used!

This was going to be a one-layer project but I couldn't resist cutting them out and adding some dimension!

I used:
Lots of ink; Red, Rhubarb Stalk, Elderberry, Black (those are the ones I do remember!)
Acrylic paint (Claret)
Silver Starlight Paint
Glitter Gel (Red , Silver)
Fabric Weave Embossing folder (Crafters' Companion)
Silver gel Pen, Tiny gems
Plush Hearts (Memory Box),   Thread Background  (Prima)
  Plush Hearts - Memory Box

Prima Thread Background
