Birthday Balloons

Today's Uniko Studio card is for the Retro Sketch challenge #56.

During my last trip to Sydney I met  a lovely lady who shared her Art Journal with me.  She introduced me to dylusions ink sprays, amongst other things! I couldn't resist adding  a 'couple' to my stash :).

This card is made from a thick, textured watercolour card.
The lime polka dot strip is one of the pieces I've sprayed using sequin waste as a mask.  What you can't see in the photo is the sparkle added by spritzing first with a mix of water and PearlEx......pretty!

The images and sentiments are from Uniko Studio Stamps: Label Love: Birthday. All stamped and cut by hand to add to the card front.  Fine twine, and buttons are from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I have one more post before Easter with the last of the cards I made using Uniko Studio Stamps, hope you'll call past to check them out.

Uniko Studio Stamps: Label Love : Birthday

Super fun card, Sue - I had heard that fluorescent colors were coming back! Thanks so much for playing with us at RetroSketches!

That neon green is sharp enough to knock an eye out! :-D It looks great with the pink for a vibrant and fun card. You'll have to do more with the Dylusions and show us how they go!
