Hey friends!! Stopping in with a card that I put together yesterday evening for a few challenges: CAS(E) this Sketch, Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (anything goes) and Time Out (home sweet home). I haven't played along with a Time Out challenge in quite sometime, but when I took another look at the inspiration photo I realized that my card would fit with their challenge (the red throw and blue end tables). The EE Pin-Sights challenge is full of lot of fun images in red and blue. I took my inspiration from the blue honeycomb decorations, as well as the color red and created a little cluster of red balloons. For the background of my panel I scribbled on some blue using a ZIG Prussian Blue clean color marker on watercolor cardstock and then moved the color around with a wet paint brush. Once that was dry I added the clouds from the EE set Up the Happy in a darker blue. The balloon (also from Up the Happy) was stamped three times using VersaFine Vintage Sepia on watercolor paper and then colored with a ZIG Carmine Red clean color marker and clean water. Once the balloons were dry I die cut them and added some Diamond Stickles for a bit a glitter (inspired by the roll of red glitter tape). Some thin white hemp twine was secured to the back of the balloons and once they were arranged and adhered I tied the strings together. The sentiment (from Up the Happy) was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black.
Thanks for stopping by today... would love to hear your thoughts!
