Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend, hope you have some fun plans. I’m hoping to get a bunch of crafting done and enjoy the beautiful weather. Stampin’ Up! is having there OnStage event in Salt Lake City in November and I have about 100 cards I need to make for various swaps (trading cards with other demonstrators) and I’d like to make sure they are all completed by the end of October so I have some work to do!
Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #259 – Inspiration. Sometime when you see a picture like this an image pops in your head – then you need to figure out how to get it on paper. Right away then I saw all the umbrella’s, I immediately thought of balloons is the sky, which leads me to card, pictured below.
After first stamping some balloons on Whisper White, I decide that did nothing for me, then I remembered a few cards I saw on Pinterest were people stamped the image and water colored, the end result is my card below. To get started I picked by four colors: Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach. Next using the balloon outline stamps from Balloons Celebration one by one stamped the image on Watercolor Paper and used by Aqua Painter to fill them in. Once they were all dry, I added Soft Sky in the background with my Aqua Painter and used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to create the strings. To finish off the balloons I added Clear Wink of Stella for Sparkle and Shine. On the bottom right of the card, I stamped “sending” from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Basic Black die cut ‘love’ from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies (the stamp set & Thinlits coordinate).
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.
Have a great day – Craft On!
