One Layer Cards

I have a couple of one layer cards to share today.  They are both the same design, but a different sentiment and a few tweaks here and there.  I wanted these to have a bit of a watercolor look, so after applying the ink to the stamp, I sprayed a mist of water from afar before stamping, and I also rocked the stamp a bit.  They blended quite nicely where there is overlap. 


And a great use for all that washi tape!   While the card above has colorful sequins on the balloons, I changed it up on the card blow and did just clear sequins around the balloons.  I like elements of both cards . . . prefer the washi tape on the bottom card, but I think I like the sequins on the top one. 


I'm entering that top one in the Seize the Birthday challenge for this week . . .





 
I hope you find some time to create today!
