I did this for the Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast. Today we had to use stars somewhere on our project. I used some background paper that had stars on it designed by Sandy Lion.
Though she didn't do her card for this challenge, I was inspired by Anna's card here
I watercolored the images with Twinkling H2O's. Lots of sparkle glue on the party hat and I added a gloss medium to the balloons, though the photo didn't pick it up. Its a medium that you can find at any fine art supply store. They sell it by the jar full. Mine is Curry's own brand, Tri-Art Self Leveling Gel Gloss.
Balloons are stamped and cut out. I tied thread around the balloon ends. Using an exacto knife, I cut into the hoof and inserted the threads and fastened them down with glue tape. That was actually the trickiest part to the whole thing!
