Oxides and Balloons

Hi Everyone! 

Why is it that winter seems to zip along?  I feel busy but seem to get nothing done- well, I do make cards.  :) 
I finally took the plunge and bought some distress oxide inks- a little late to the party, I know.  I really was good with my regular distress inks, but I had to get with the program...

I used a brand new Technique Junkies Stamp set, Faith, Hope and Love, for this card.  While this set is not technically a birthday set, the heart image makes great balloons. 
The hearts were heat embossed, colored with distress oxides, and then masked.  The background was sponged with Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade and Peacock Feathers.  I used a stencil and dabbed with a damp towel to 'oxidize' some of the background.  The balloon strings were drawn in with a micron pen and splatters were added.  The sentiment is the Donuts Happy Birthday image.
