I'm very pleased I've managed to make a card for a Stamplorations challenge.
This is the new CAS challenge launched this month.
I've used the Stamplorations Balloons and Banners set which I was lucky enough to win last summer. Thanks Shery.
not entirely happy with this card as I started stamping at the left and
did not leave enough room at the right. I think the silver balloon
needs more space to be floating into. Then I couldn't trim as it is one
layer. (This was already my third go so I didn't want to start again or
give in and layer. Maybe I should have done that).
I coloured the escapee in silver and then added a little silver thread for the optional colour twist.
I said this was my third go. I messed up the colouring on the first one
trying to add some highlights. Then I had the bright idea of how to
I've cut out balloons from this crap of paper and glued them over the original colouring. Now I think I like this card best. Still wish it was more to the left.
So take your pick, no silver colour twist on this one though!
So as well as the Stamplorations challenge I am skipping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground. I have my gloves and scarf as it's a bit nippy.
I think I'm right in saying that I have only cut into one new piece of card this year and everything else has been made from snippets. Not that the pile seems any smaller. Now I have organised my stash I know what I have and (usually) know where it is.
