The Ton Floral Balloon (+Giveaway)

by | Mar 17, 2020 | Backgrounds, Blog, Colored Pencils, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, The Ton Stamps, Wedding

Hello, friends! Today, I am popping in to share a project created with the new Spring release from The Ton Stamps! Effie has a total of 11 new stamps and a few coordinating dies. Instagram Hops are scheduled on March 17th, 18th and 19th at 3pm EST/12pm PST each day, but the giveaway can only be entered on Instagram! More details on that below…

Create this project by Rose Gold heat embossing the elegant Floral Balloon, offset onto a scant A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) panel Canson Montval watercolor paper. Color design with Brushmarker Pro watercolor pens in Magenta Red, Pale Pink, Praline, Almond, Cool Aqua and Lime Green. Brushmarkers make it really easy to shade with just water and a simple brush. Each pane of the balloon is just one color, either Magenta Red or Pale Pink (which is actually a more coral shade). Add color to the top, bottom and a slight amount at the sides and blend with clear water.

After coloring the flowers and leaves, add Cool Aqua around the outside of the balloon and blend out with clear water loosely. The more careless, the better – almost! On a full size Canson Montval A2 watercolor panel blend Praline over the top half around the perimeter. Then blend a quarter of Pale Pink and then Magenta Red. This variegated border kicks the detail up a notch for added interest.

Once the flowers are dry, deepen the shadows on the petals with a sharp Prismacolor Colored Pencil in Mineral Orange, Sunburst Yellow and Cream. Stamp sentiment in black.

Adhere balloon panel popped onto variegated border panel with foam tape. Adhere Glass Slipper sequins with Precision Glue near the sentiment and within flowers. Adhere finished card to folded card base.

Giveaway: One winner will be randomly chosen from the Instagram comments on the hops and will be announced on The Ton’s Instagram Stories on Thursday, March 20. The winner will be able to choose a stamp from our Spring 2020 Release (excluding Spring Layered Alphas). This giveaway is open to everyone. It is not sponsored or affiliated with Instagram – but, it only takes place on Instagram! You can find my post HERE.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. Be kind to yourself, friends. Keep happy and healthy. I’ll see you soon!

xo, Janette
