I'm popping in for a very quick post this evening, as we have enjoyed our traditional Valentine's day Venison dinner with the Culinary Consultant today. We didn't get to enjoy our traditional dinner yesterday on V-day as we were off to a wedding.
I loved this week's ColourQ challenge, and wanted to create a card for it. I was not only inspired by the colours but also by the balloon theme in the inspiration picture, so I chose to use my lovely Tim Holtz balloon stamp. I stamped onto real newspaper and paper pieced the balloon part of the image. I wanted to keep the card really minimal so the beautiful stamp would be the main focus, and I think it turned out quite nice, although I only had a short time to spend in the craft room today. I would also like to link up at Fashionable Stamping where the theme is Black and White with a hint of red, Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges where the theme is Up In The Air, Sweet Stampin' where the theme is inspired by a song (Frank Sinatra - Come Fly With Me) and last but not least Lil Patch of Crafty Friends where Anything Goes.
