I decided to try Distress Oxide Inks to create a ink blended background with primary colors. You have to be very careful when doing this because you need to overlap a little for a smooth blended background, but of course they can turn into different colors where they meet. I was able to cover up the little big of green that was created when the yellow and blue met with the My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup Die.
I added Darice Sticky Back Foam to a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and die cut the coverup die. I love the way the white chevron coverup really lets the primary colors pop and the foam backing adds some dimension.
For a sentiment I decided to use My Favorite Things Party Balloons. You can stamp the balloons with some sentiments, but I wanted to have ink blended balloons to match the background. So, I decided to die cut my sentiment from My Favorite Things Little Upper Case from Neena Classic Crest and adhered them to the balloons with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. For balloon strings I used Lawn Fawns Party Balloons and My Favorite Things Balloon Shaker Window.
The coverup background was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. The blue balloon was adhered directly to the coverup with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the sentiment balloons were adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. Ranger Multi Medium Matte was used to adhered the balloon strings. The oxide inks must not have been completely dry and so there were a few small smudges of color on the white chevron background, so I pulled out Simon Says Stamp Moonstone Sequins and strategically placed them to cover them up and the card was done.
