MIM # 221 ~ Masking Sentiments

Ashley has a video up on Capture the Moment.  
It is all about masking off your sentiment and stamping around it, then pulling the masking paper off and stamping your sentiment.
I thought it would be fun to sponge some balloons around the sentiment and let them overlap each other because balloons can be transparent!  

Here is her card:

I used a die from Simon Says Stamps for the balloons, Inkadinkado masking paper, and the sentiment is from Graceful Greetings.Ink is PTI, a silver Gelly Roll pen for the strings!

Tomorrow I am taking a field trip with three friends, we are driving into Hood River ( about 1 1/2 hour from my house), having lunch, stopping at a Peach Orchard to bring home some yummy juicy peaches and then to an Alpaca Farm to see the baby's and maybe browse through their yarn store!  Should be a fun day with the ladies...although it is supposed to be 100 degrees tomorrow..so that is NOT so good! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hope you survived the trip & got those peaches! My dad's favorite was peaches & I always gave them to him for his BD present. Great take on the challenge using balloons. Not sure if I'll figure out something to do this week.

  3. Awesome card Colleen! I love how your balloons really do look transparent...great coloring on those! And your masked sentiment nestles just perfectly in between all those balloons...love it! Hope you had a wonderful trip with your friends...do you like to knit? I love to knit...socks seem to be my favorite (and my family...they always want more!!) at the moment, although I do have yarn waiting to be knitted into a sweater for Addy! :0)

  6. Your sentiment is so pretty, and like Linda, love the way you cut it out to maximize the flourish. And your balloons really make it stand out!
