well a crafting window of opportunity opened for me Sunday afternoon so I was able to join in with the Colour INKspiration blog hop for the new challenge (06).
Here's the INKspiration swatch for the new challenge - the colours are gently intense this time!
The two blues made me think sky and that naturally led me to balloons. What could be better than gilded coral balloons floating across the sky!
I started by watercoloring my background (I embossed the clouds first). I also used a sponge brayer to colour a piece of whisper white in a gradient of Calypso Coral, then embossed gold balloons over the top and die cut them out. I just needed one large balloon, so I die cut that from Calypso Coral, clear embossed the front and backed it with vellum - oh and added gold tassels. Can you imagine how pretty that would look floating across the sky! A little twine bow and some clear accents (white ones with the backings peeled off) finish the card off.
The challenge runs till April 3. Hope you can join us ! Now next up, on the blog hop is Jacque Williams in New Zealand. Enjoy!
