Make It Monday and Colour Q

Today I am taking the Make It Monday # 136 Textured Stamping and Colour Q # 211 and letting them meet!  Ashley has a video on Capture the Moment demonstrating how she got some texture on her stamping. 
 I used the balloons from Birthday Bash and the sentiment from Think Big Favorites # 12.
I stamped the balloons with raspberry fizz, lemonade ice, and orange zest and then swiped the pad across the inked image before stamping.  I did stamp some second generation stamping for some of the balloons.

This is a fun technique to get some texture on your solid images.
We are having a little Indian Summer here in Oregon...wow nearly 70 degrees today.
Heart Hugs Friends,
Colleen
