A Valentine Balloon

This week's Less is More challenge is to use one or more balloons on a card.  I went with one balloon.


I put the stamp in my MISTI, inked up the girl and string in black and the balloon in red, using the little Memento dew drops ink pads - made it easier than my big ink pads. Added a simple sentiment and popped it up on fun foam on a red slightly shimmery card base. I added Glossy Accents to the balloon.

I'll be back with some more Valentine cards soon.





Supplies:
Stamps - Viva Las Vegas Banksy Balloon Girl, PTI sentiment
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug
Paper - white cs, red with slight shimmer cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Glossy Accents, fun foam

Such a simple design but the colour palette and movement of the images adds fantastic impact.
