JAI #313 Just add B

Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink Tina has suggested that we Just Add B. Add B?? Well that means you can add anything starting with B. It could be a colour like Blushing Bride or Bermuda Bay or just blue, something like a bear, a badger, a bottle or a technique like using baby wipes, bleach or bokeh. As long as it's the main focus of your project. This gives you lots of scope to try something you love or something new! 

As you've probably guessed I decided to add bears (and birthday!).

I started by using a stencil to add a scattering of stars to my card front which I then embossed. Next step was to brayer a gradient of blue over the stars. After that it was just adding the other elements on top. The bears, balloon and presents I coloured in with copics. It takes time but it's such a relaxing thing to do to just sit down and colour! I finished off the balloon with a sheen of Wink of Stella. That and the glint of sliver trim and cord add the required amount of bling ;) 

Hope can join us this week. Do go check out the rest of the DT projects you'll be inspired!
