Fun In The Sun


Well Good Morning!

For this project I had a bit of fun! I happened to be messing about with punches and this idea popped into my head so I went with it…

There is quite a lot going on here with Washi tapes and stamps and inks,  so bear with me whilst I try to describe how it all comes together…

Card Base: Whisper White cut to 4″ x 8″. Scored in half to create a top folding 4″ x 4″ card and burnished with a bone folder to give a nice crisp edge. I used a 2 1/4 inch Circle punch to punch a window in the front.

Then layered some sky blue lace behind the hole and placed a square of silver foil behind, all glued with fine tip glue pen to the rear of the front card flap.

Balloons: For all but one Balloon I have used Whisper White cardstock, and the Balloon punch.

#1: Flirty Flamingo ink pad, Aquapainters. I punched this one out of plain whisper white, then added the colour to the outside of the balloon to give a multi tonal effect.

#2 I stuck some of the Red striped washi tape from the Affectionately yours set onto whisper white cardstock and punched as many balloons as I could fit to my cardstock.

#3 Gold foil spotty washi tape from the Affectionately  yours set, technique is as above in #2.

#4 On a small sheet of Whisper white I stamped the marbled background stamp inked with peekaboo peach ink pad, before punching out a series of balloons.

#5 dapper denim ink pad and the diagonal stripe background stamp created a great striped effect. I ran the aqua painter over the top to blend the ink over.

#6 Gold foil,

#1,3,4 have some dimentionals to give that little pop of dimention. #2,5,6 are glued down with fine tip glue pen, then some silver metallic thread tied to each balloon to create the strings.

The products I used are shown below!

I hope you enjoyed todays project!
