A Fistful of Balloons
Wow, I can't believe I managed to create a single layer card, and it wasn't even part of a challenge. The challenge I did meet is from this week's Friday Mashup! This is a blog I've just recently discovered and decided to try the challenge.... to create a card for kids, or use the color combination of Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Real Red....OR Mash those two challenges together in one card.
As soon as I placed the scraps of color on my desk I saw balloons, and pulled out this stamp because I just love the long swirling strings!
I stamped the balloon image on watercolor paper to colour in the balloons - and for a final Mash-Up - used all four colours on one balloon - of course they bled a bit and created a green in there, but I guess that's what happens sometimes when you mash things together.
I can't believe the weekend is here! I hope I can get some cleaning done and some stuff set aside for the community wide garage sale.
Have a terrific Weekend - Thanks for stopping by!
