Color Throw Down Challenge Card


I used two sets this week to complete my Color Throw Down Card.
1) Crazy For Cupcakes - pg. 68 $23.95 (Balloon)
2) Party Hearty - pg. 69 $26.95 (Sentiment)
I used the Scallop Circle Punch - pg. 186 $15.95
and also the 1" & 3/4" Circle Punches. They can also be found on pg. 186 and both are $10.95. I stamped the balloons on my Whisper White CS, then I stamped them on Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss. I cut them out and mounted them with adhesive onto the card (I also added some Craft Whisper White Ink with a Blender Pen to give a shadow effect on each of the balloons). I then stamped in Black StazOn the sentiment and punched it out. I punched the other circles and adhered them to each other. Then I sponged around the card in Tempting Turquoise, and added a ribbon in the same color. Lastly I added my sentiment with Dimensionals. I hope you enjoy this idea. Just a side note...you can also stamp your balloons onto DSP and then cut them out. This will give your balloons some pattern/design.

HAPPY STAMPING,

So pretty. Very crisp and bright. I'm also really liking that scallop circle punch...not sure how I've gotten by without one for so long!
