I LOVE doing watercolor washes. I'm not a great water colorer with the detailed images. However...a watercolor wash I can do. And I love it! Here I just did a wash over the embossed sentiment to make it pop. The rest of the card is very subtle.

The balloon is embossed in white on Vellum Cardstock. The bow is cut out using the die from the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits.
This whole card front is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. Although it's hard to see in a photo--there is a fun shimmer on all of it! And a little splatter goes a long way! Love me some splattering!
Let me know if you have any questions! Hope you enjoy!
