I totally love balloons - so it is pretty obvious why I LOVE this stamp! This is easily my favorite stamp from Unity Stamps newest Kit of the Month - so since it arrived Saturday, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
This is one of those cards that just kind of came together by accident - but I love the (unexpected) result! I started off by stamping the bike and balloon image in red, then distressed the paper and it's darker blue mat with my Tim Holtz distress tool. On a whim, I decided to lightly spray it with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Creme de Chocolat that I had not tried out yet. Then, since that hid the image a little more than I wanted, I decided to restamp it in black. Of course, my aim was bad and I missed, but I kind of like how it is off-set a little anyway. Added the brads to hold the layer together, pop dotted the bike and sentiment, used a little Baker's Twine at the side of the sentiment, and finished by inking the edge of the background paper before attaching it to a pre-made card.
