I made a card for the challenge at Inkspirational. This week it's colors:
Here's my card. I really wanted to play and I kept trying to come up with something that I liked. I had flowers out, and I embossed some yellow cardstock but I couldn't make sense of it. So then I thought-what if I could make it a little grungy or steampunkish? So I don't know if I succeeded in either of those categories but I know I had more fun using my Tim Holtz clock stamp and Tim Holtz stains than if I had used flowers.
The background is a dictionary page that I colored with worn lipstick stain. The Admit One ticket is the slate color which is stormy skies stain. It's one of Tim Holtz's embossing folders. The sentiment is from T.H. Stamper Anonymous (an awesome set!) and then the hot air balloon is from Hampton Arts. I also have a piece of Recollections washi tape (birds) across the middle.
I used Weathered Wood distress ink to help pop the ticket, and I used a little on the hot air balloon.
This challenge ends soon, but Wednesday there will be a new one! :)
Here is a close up. I think I will be using the ticket embossing folder a few more times! :)
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...where would you like a hot air balloon to take you? (besides the sky) ;)
