The Alley Way Sneak Peek Day #1

Whoo Hoo.. Exciting news for you today!! I was selected along with a few other very talented ladies to join the Alley Way Stamps Design Team.. And with January just around the corner that means a New Release! 

And you will love all these fun sets coming in January! Today I'm showcasing a fun card using the new set Cake Day. 

This was such a fun card to make.. I started with a panel of watercolor paper and I created the background with some Distress Inks. You smoosh the Distress inks onto Large Acrylic Block or Silicone Mat and spritz it with water and then you lay the paper in it and move the color around, you can add more layers as you go along. 

Once my background was dry I added the other elements to it. I stamped the balloons & banner from the set on Neenah Solar White card stock in MFT Hybrid ink and colored them in with Copics and fussy cut them out. Once they were dry I added some highlights with a white gel pen. I glues the balloons down first and then added the strings with a Copic Multi-liner and then I added the banner image. I stamped the sentiment onto a Banner I Die cut from the Mama Elephant Basic Set. 

I added the panel to a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock from Stampin' Up! with dimensional adhesive. So cute.... Be sure to head over to the Alley Way Stamps Blog and see some more peeks and a Chance to win this fun set!
