I started with something pretty simple with this card, I wet embossed the greeting and ribbon bit with some white embossing powder.
I sprayed water all over the panel, dropped some leafy green and lemon brusho, i sprayed again and dropped some salt. I brushed off the salt once the panel was dried and it left these darker dots you can see all over the car.
In order to add interest I die-cut some balloon shapes (Paper Smooches) that I raised with fun foam.
I added more dimension with black and grey copic markers on the balloons and around the ribbons and greeting. I also added some glossy accent on the balloons to add that shiny little something ;).
I find the salt technique interesting, it would probably work great for a sandy beach.
If you decide to give that technique a go let me know 😉
