I used Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral to watercolor the embossed background and then used a Memory Box die to cut the Happy Birthday...this die always makes me smile!
I also swiped the ink pads directly on paper to get the darker colors for the perfect match layer and the die cut balloons. The balloon strings are embroidery floss and the white accent on the balloons is from a white Pitt pen.
Thanks for taking a look!
