Girl with Birthday balloon image hand stamped with Memento ink and coloured in using a blender pen and Memento colour markers.
The rubber stamp is from Magnolia Rubberstamps, a company in Sweden and the stamp used is YS11 Tilda with Balloon. It's quite an old design - came out in the year 2011 and I had it since then but have not used it. In fact, I have quite a number of their stamps and only used a few.
So it is time to take them out of storage and make some greeting cards with these cute pretty images.
A friend's daughter will be celebrating her birthday early next month so I thought I should make the little girl a pretty card to wish her Happy Birthday.
I have been wanting to use my collection of Magnolia rubber stamps for quite some time; years in fact but was too busy to dig them out of storage since I moved to my new apartment about three years ago.
The first image that came out of the box is this little girl named Tilda in a sweet lacy flock and ribbon in her long wavy hair. And she's carrying a birthday balloon in her hand. No Happy Birthday words on the balloon though.
So I took out a sheet of my 200gsm white card stock, Memento's Tuxedo Black ink pad and colour markers. The below image shown my stamped image including balloon only images. I was thinking of layering the balloon on top of the whole image but aborted it in the end.
If you blender pen gets rather dry; no longer wet and juicy, don't throw it away. Make your own blender pen refill.
Click here for the recipe and instructions on how to refill your pen.
Just touch the blender pen tip to the colour marker brush tip and apply the colour onto the stamped image. Start with a layer and go over where you want a stronger colour.
Viola! A pretty Happy Birthday card for a sweet little princess who loves pink balloons and puffy clouds :-)
