Addicted to Stamps Challenge #141

Hello,

It's time for a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge!! The challenge this week is Anything Goes! I am also entering this into Avery Elle's Watercolor Challenge.

For this card i used distress markers to do my watercoloring. I used the markers to color the stamps, spritz them with water, then stamped. I did this with all the stamps except the 'th' and 'hip hip hooray.'

I started with the number six from Avery Elle's Numbered Balloon stamp set. Next i stamped the balloon string and then Ellie the elephant. I also stamped some grass and a tiny bug.

To color the elephant and grass, i colored distress markers on a clear block and with water and a paint brush colored them up. Below Ellie i stamped a sentiment, but added to much water and you couldn;t read it. So i trimmed it off.

Next i found a piece of card stock and colored the bottom the same color as the balloon, first by coloring a clear block and adding water! Then i stamped and embossed in white a different sentiment. I adhered the strip to the bottom of card so it was back to its normal size! Last i added a few sequins

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you will play along with us Addicted to Stamps and More!!
