I went with the sketch this time but did pull a few elements from the photo - predominantly the green and black colors. I had some fun with alchohol inks and created a beautiful panel using some soft and pale colors. I've had alcohol inks for years and years and doing the recent Creative Chemistry course has re-activated my interest in this medium.
My card is pretty self-explanatory. I used some stitched dies to frame the inked piece and die-cut a balloon and sponged the left hand side for some dimension. The sentiment is white embossed and comes from the MFT set The Whole Herd - I think this is one of my favorite birthday sentiment stamps.
