Welcome back to day #2 of reveals for the January release at Ink to Paper. Today, we are introducing Vintage Flair stamp set and dies + Vintage Flair Print stamp set + Big Balloon stamp set and dies + Big Balloon Sentiment stamp set + Cover Plate: Big Balloon die + Big Balloon stencils.
The background collage-style stamp is beautiful and I chose to stamp it in black over a stenciled background.
The bouquet was stamped in black then clear embossed to make it easier to watercolor the images with distress oxide inks.

One of my new favorites is this balloon cover die! I used some festive distress oxide inks to create the smooshed background then splattered with Gouache paint in Permanent White.
Note the two center balloons that have the stars stenciled on them. Just another fun way to individualize the card!
