One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge Challenge is new to me,
and when I saw the Bokah demonstrated HERE
I knew I wanted to give it a try.
On a full piece of water color paper I wet it, then brushed in some distress inks.
After it was dry I took a small balloon stamp from SSS and using HA unicorn pigment ink, I stamped the white smaller balloons all over the paper.
After it was all dry I cut them into the strips.
I think I might try this again using different colors and maybe flowers!
Here is the picture for the inspiration for this challenge!
