Hello everyone, hope you had a good Easter weekend relaxing and crafting. As today is Friday it is the start of another Daring Cardmakers challenge. Miri is hosting this week's challenge and wants to see Balloons on your cards party balloons, hot air balloons just one or even 99 red balloons, however many you want on your card. Pop over the Daring Cardmakers for more information and inspiration from the design team.
My card was made quickly as last week and the Easter weekend were taken up with family, again this was a rushed card made a few days before the challenge date. I used papermilldirect white hopsack card which gives a lovely texture to the balloons, Taylored Expressions "Bold Balloons" stamps and dies set and Versa Magic multi surface chalk ink pads which give a lovely soft translucent image.
Using a selection of ink colours I stamped the balloons in a group added some strings, a die cut balloon was placed in the center using thin sticky pads and the birthday string stamped underneath it. The corners were rounded and an insert added which had more balloons stamped onto it.
