Another White Space Challenge


I decided to take on another white space challenge at 365 cards. I was inspired by Pollycraft and Crafts and Me to use pink, brown, and yellow. My "white space" is brown, and on to it I layered a piece of yellow cardstock that I distressed using my Tim Holtz distresser. Next I stamped the big balloon using TH tattered rose distress ink and Cat's Eye soft brown ink and added some stickles. Then I cut out three different sized balloons using my Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and covered them with glossy accents to give the appearance of real shiny balloons. I added a few bling, and I was done. Quick and simple card...which I made with the following challenges in mind.


Simple Doodles - inspire others
Bitten by the Bug 2 - stamp and cricut cut
Practical Scrappers and ABC Challenge - bling/glitter/sparkle
Penny's Paper - anything goes
Stampin' Royalty - keep it simple
Creative Belli - die cut shapes
