Marbled Balloons for CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge

Hi All

I want to share a card I recently made for my sister's boyfriend using a marbled card from last month's shaving foam technique class.

The inspiration came from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #190 combined with the colouring technique I used for CC&S#188


I used the outline balloon stamps from the Balloon Celebration set to create a couple of masks before stamping on the marbled card. I created more depth by using the Aqua Painters to add shadows before colouring the background with Island Indigo marker and drawing the strings using white pigment pen. I then heat embossed the stars randomly in gold as well as adding shimmer on the balloons with a glitter brush pen.

I still have a few of these marbled cards and will share more makes once I think of other ways of using them.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like the card.
