Balloons......

              Neon Colours.............
I made this card with inspiration from 3 challenges.
The challenges involved Balloons, Neon colours, 
Gents theme and Embossing.
I thought of Andy Warhol and his vibrant Neon colours.
So this is my card....
I started by stamping and embossing the Balloon stamp four times.
I used Pigment Neon Stamp Pads to water colour the balloons.
I didn't know the pigment ink would water colour.
All of the colours stayed vibrant and solid (except for the purple!).
The next step was a lot of masking and blending.
The inks blended really well....except for the Purple!
I wanted the Balloons all to be on one layer.
It would have been so much easier to do them all separately 
but hey that would have been too easy.
The sentiment is computer generated 
as I wanted the word 'Sending' and didn't have one.
I've made the card today for my husbands friend.
The challenges are.....
