Good morning peeps.
It gives me great pleasure to be guesting over at the TWOFER challenge this month. Darnell asked if I would GD after my win in January with my cheeky chicks twofer!
So here I am with my TWOFER for this month's challenge.
Can you guess the theme? Well this month it is -
I decided that I would use my balloon STAX dies from MFT for my cards.
I chose to concentrate on the second smallest, using first one on its own followed by a balloon fest of rainbow one's.
Here is my first also using LOTV's Balloon Baby.
I replaced the stamped balloon with a die cut one and chose a circular format for a change.
The card base was made by cutting into a 5 x 5 square card with a large Spellbinders scalloped circle die, leaving the left side of the die over hanging the fold to keep the hinge element. You could of course cut two separate circles and glue them together to make the base card.
The DP, cut with Tonic stacked circle dies, is from NitWits and the image was coloured with Copics before fussing cutting and adding to my base with pads. The sentiment from Mama Elephant was stamped on a die cut banner and slipped under the image.
The die cut balloon was cut from white and coloured with Copic markers.
This second card uses the same balloon die cut but this time in rainbow colours.
I cut some balloons from scraps of card which I then shaded with matching DI ink and added some hi-lights and strings with a white gel pen on a black base card.
The sentiment is part of a CUTplorations Birthday Wishes die cut from silver glitter paper and black fun foam, the wishes from Uniko was stamped and heat embossed with white EP.
Quite a simple card but it certainly has impact I think.
That's it then from me. It may well be for quite awhile too as I mentioned in my, last post I chipped the head of my humerus in a fall a week ago and am now out of action until I get the all clear from the orthopaedic bods at the hospital! I'm typing these last few sentences with one finger so please forgive me for not leaving comments, even if I do visit! Good job I was on top of some of my GD commitments.
