Sunday Stampers - Week 203 - RED

Hello Lovely Blog Friends

Today I am entering the Sunday Stampers Challenge which is run by the multi talented Hels Sheridan over at  http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ and this week the challenge is simply to make something with RED.



I still have not fully decided what my 'style' is but this entry is a mix of old and modern.  I have used my favourite balloon stamp from IndigoBlu, the papers are Papermania Portobello Road and a few words by the amazing Tim Holtz.  I embossed the balloon in black, coloured it with fired brick  distress marker  and then I added some cut up ribbon to make the bunting around the balloon.  The words say 'life is an adventure' and the metal tag says 'journey'.  I have incorporated as much red as possible.

If you like it please do leave me a comment and I will repay the compliment wherever possible.  Have a lovely day.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  10. Your card is amazing! I truly love it!!! The union jack bunting on your balloon looks fantastic! I also love it in the background of your card. WOW!!! This is really stunning. I also wanted to thank you for your sweet comment you left on my blog about my kaleidoscope of color piece. I usually tend to go to the more "distress ink" colors. That is my comfort zone...but Dyan's wonderful Dylusional inks are really fascinating to me. <3 Candy

  14. I was blown away when I read the balloon was a STAMP. What they won't turn into stamps! This is a wonderful layout and stunning art. I would say you have an eclectic style, which of course, I love!!
