~Stampin' Balloons~

Today is my Mother-In-Law's Birthday!

Her favorite color is purple, so I hovered in that arena.

I heavily stamped on this one-layered card for the

I was able to use more than half of the balloons in the Inkadinkado Patterned Balloons set.

The only purples I have are my Memento Sweet Plum and my Staz On Royal Purple (I learned from other cardmakers to stamp with Versamark first for easier cleaning).

Stamping the Staz On inked balloon first on a scratch piece of paper gave me a lighter color...almost a third color to work with!

Some Memento Pistachio-inked balloons were added for a bit of contrast.

I only had to cut out a mask for two balloons...I spread out the others for a quick card.

Thanks for stopping by today~I pray things aren't dire where you are.  

If they are, let me know how to pray for you, ok?
