Balloons

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with Twofer Card Challenge. Their challenge is all about balloons. Here are my cards for today, enjoy!

__________________________________________
First Card
Deflating balloon

Above: I am using the balloon stamp and the action 'poof' stamp to suggest I messed up and missed their birthday. Nothing is more upsetting than a deflating balloon. Left/Below: The black border frames this CAS scene very nicely. Right/Bottom: The action sentiment was colored using Prismacolor pencils. The balloon was stamped and embossed in white. I sponged Stormy Sky DI around the balloon. It looked a bit bland so I colored the balloon squares with a red alcohol marker. I think it made all the difference.

 Second Card 
Using the same balloon stamp as above.

Above: This card shows actual floating balloons with lots of color and movement. Left/Below: The ombre balloons are so pretty. I created them using a multi-color ink pad. I stamped the balloon on the pad using an up and down motion. It does muddy up the ink pad a bit but look at the results! Right/Bottom: The cloud background is DP from my stash. I thought the whimsical clouds and visual texture were perfect. The 'thank you' sentiment is what I think makes this card special. The movement of the stamp and the balloon placement is so much fun and playful. I stamped the sentiment first in gray, then moved the paper a bit and finally, stamped the black to create a fantastic sense of depth.

Two very creative cards Shawna! What a great idea for the deflating balloon for a belated birthday. So clever. The bright colours are fun. The second card is so pretty with the rainbow coloured balloons. Gorgeous with the cloudy sky and the wonderful thank you that nestles between that balloons. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

Your hot air balloon designs are terrific, Shawna! I love how you made the belated birthday balloon deflate so dramatically and the checkerboard pattern you used! And those ombre balloons? Oh my, the coloring is sensational! I love the fun font of your thank you and the beautiful cloud background! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #14! Hugs, Darnell
