Wishing you the BEST Birthday ever!....{MCT Birthday Palooza}

Good Morning friends and welcome back to my blog for another
Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!
Today we are showcasing birthday projects using of course MCT stamps and dies!
For my project today, I pulled out some watercolors for a CAS birthday card.
Take a look and let me know what you think....
It has been a while since I played with my Zig watercolor markers and I always say I really need to use them more often, I love how easy they are to color with.
Anyways to make my card, I used a piece of watercolor cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Then using the balloons from the Stitched Circle Balloon Die set, I made a stencil with some acetate.
Using that stencil, I colored in the balloons using my watercolor markers. I wasn't happy with the initial card but once I filled in some of the missing color and highlights I love the way the balloons look.
The sentiment, from the Wow So Many Candles set was stamped directly onto the dried watercolor cardstock and then the whole card mat was popped up onto the front of a kraft cardstock base.
To finish off my card, I added some small sequins to each of the balloons.

So what do you think of my birthday card? Remember using MCT dies is a great way to make your own stencils for coloring or stamping!!

 I appreciate you taking the time to stop by today! Make sure to check out the rest of the inspiration over on the MCT blog!
Have a GREAT Thursday everyone!!!
