So I had to put those Verve stamps right to use. Here is one of the balloons stamped in Staz On Black and then colored with my sharpies. I tried to get as close to the Color Throwdown challenge colors as I could. Not sure they are really even close, but I tried. After coloring them in, I layered the oval on top of some Recollections Tattered and Worn collection that was dry embossed with my Cuttlebug Swirl folder. I also added a strip of Purple paper from my stash. To embellish, I added a couple of gold brads and some blue baker's twine by Recollection. All this I adhered to a slightly smaller panel than my 3.5x6 inch card.
I am entering this in this weeks Color Throwdown challenge: #327
I am also entering in Mojo Monday # 382
Because I used Markers, Twine, Stamping, Embossing, and brads I am entering Craft Hoarder's Anonymous' January Choose Your Challenge
Also, I used an oval so this is entered into the Ways to Use it Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers # 515.
I hope you enjoy the card and have a great weekend.
