happy birthday

Happy Wednesday!!
Today I'm sharing, and featuring this Watercolor happy birthday Card.
I have use Papertrey Ink White Cardstock 110lbs for the base. For the Watercolor technique I have use Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper by Ranger 4 1/4" by 5 1/2",  great quality!
The card measure 4 1/2" by 5 1/2"
I cut the black cardstock by hand using my exacto knife, the distress markers I have use are:
Worn Lipstick
Peacock Feathers
Stormy Sky
Crushed Olive and
Spiced Marmalade
They all are from Tim Holtz Distress Markers by Ranger.
By using my Watercolor brush I blend each color!

I have stamp and emboss the sentiment ''happy birthday" using Versa-Mark and White embossing powder.The Sentiment came from CTMH Just a Number.
The balloons are from Simple Charmed Cricut Cartridge, I went around the edges of the balloons using 100 Black Copic Marker to accentuate the balloons.
To make the 3D balloons stand out a little bit more I add Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
Thanks for hanging out with me today and I hope you have enjoy this small tutorial,
