Hi friends!  Happy Saturday!  I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  I've got a fun rainbow balloon birthday card to share with you all today using the Oval Balloon stencil by Catherine Pooler.  I used my blending brushes over the stencil to create the row of rainbow balloons.  I didn't mind about overlap because it just added dimension to the balloons.

I added a bit more ink towards the bottoms of the balloons for more dimension.  I love that gradient look.  I stamped the bows and strings using gold pigment ink and matted the panel using a gold glimmer paper.  The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Many Ways stamp set.  I love all the different fonts in this set.
