Balloon Celebration | Fish

The What Will You Stamp Challenge set of this week is Balloon Celebration.This time it is a wonderfull set with balloons and a lot of different stamps (28 of them!). Every time when I play with this challeng I try to do something different with the presented set. Also this time.

I did not used the balloonstamp as balloon but I made a fish out of it. I stamped the fish with the big balloon in turquoise. Than I stamped the big and smaller balloon shadow stamp with Versamark and used light blue glitter embossing powder.

Can you find all the other stamps that I used? Solutions below …

Up … up … and away

With this card I was a cut above at The Paper Players Challenge #283: Up…up and away
and one of the favorites at Little Red Wagon #330: Furry Friends

Voor deze kaart haalde ik mijn inspiratie bij de  Paper Players Challenge #283: Up…up and away.
Het is een CAS-challenge. Dat wil zeggen dat de kaart simple en helder moet zijn.
Ik sneed de ballon uit met de SU balloon framelits dies. Ik maakte de ballon roze met de spons-techniek. Ik stempelde een wolk op de achtergrond. En ik kleurde een konijntje in met mijn waterpainter.

This time I got my inspiration from The Paper Players Challenge #283: Up…up and away.
It is a CAS challenges. That means that the card must be clean and simple.
I cut out a balloon with the SU balloon framelits dies. Then I sponged the balloon with Blushing Bride ink. I stamped one cloud on the back. And I colored a little bunny with my aquapainter and put it on top of the balloon.

Fairy Tale Challenge # 137: Ballons




I made this card inspired on the PPA283 Color Challenge. For the background I used the technique where you tap some ink on a plastic sheet, spray with a little water and  pull your card through the ink. Then I stamped the edges with the Timeless Texture stamp.
The balloons are stamped all in Melon Mambo but the different shades of ink are made with the stamp off technique. The balloons are glued with dimensionals of a different heigth to obtain extra dept.
