Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Pretty Balloons ...

Hi Everybody,

So today I am adding in an extra YouTube video using those Brusho Crystal Colours  again for a fun effect

You will need some oval dies as well as the Brushos and some water coloured card.

I used some silver thread as the strings to my balloons but you could always draw them onto the card if you preferred

And to create the shine I used Glossy Accents.

The Video tutorial is called Oval Balloons and Glossy Accents  and it takes you step by step through the process to create these cards.

It's really easy to do and the longest part is waiting for the Glossy Accents to dry.

Don't be tempted to speed up the process with your heat tool though or you will spoil the effect.

Patience is a virtue !!
I hope you will give this try and there is another fun idea coming up on  my YouTube channel Thursday 30th June

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Hi Christina
    The only word I can use to describe this card is lush, the balloons just seem to pop off the card, love the colours and look forward to watching your video X X X

    That's a brill idea for a card. I haven't got brusho crystals but am going to have a go with another medium. Thanks for all your ideas

  8. Hi Christina,
    What a fun card! I've got some oval dies on my wish list so it looks like I need to get my act together and make an effort to buy them lol. I'm off to watch the video now, can't wait to see how you got the effect on the balloons.
