One layer birthday card

Hello and welcome. I hope your week is off to a good start so far. 
Here is the card I am sharing today:

To make the card, I tried two new techniques (at least for me). 
The first technique I tried is mirror stamping. The second one is “block coloring” (I don´t know how to call it correctly). I didn´t color the actual stamped images but only the background. I have never done this before and felt weird leaving the images uncolored, but I really like the final look of it. To create the background, I used my precious water-color pencils and drew in the clouds, grass and balloon.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!



Stamps used: Lovable Legends & Hang In There (Lawn Fawn)

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #23 – Try a New Technique (mirror stamping & block coloring)
MFT Color Challenge #88

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Für die oben gezeigte Karte habe ich zwei (für mich zumindest neue) Techniken ausprobiert. Die erste Technik ist „Mirror Stamping“. Die korrekte Bezeichnung für die zweite Technik ist mir unbekannt, aber ich nenne sie Block Koloration. Dafür habe ich nur den Hintergrund koloriert und die gestempelten Motive ohne jegliche Koloration gelassen. Sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber das Resultat gefällt mir sehr gut. Um den Hintergrund zu gestalten, habe ich mit meinen geliebten Aquarellstiften Wolken, Gräser und den Ballon handgemalt.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen Tag!

Liebe Grüsse
