STAMPlorations August Blog Hop Day 2





Hi Everyone!

It's Blog Hop Time again over at STAMPlorations! Welcome to Day 2, where we're shining the spotlight on Balloons and Banners, a set designed by Deepti aka Dee's Artsy Impressions.

Here is the set ...


...and here is what I made of it ...


I basically turned one of the balloons into little lanterns using the Eiffel Tower from the World Birthday Cakes set as my candle. I did this by using a black pen to doodle the rims and bases, masking off and just stamping the flame inside the lanterns before colouring them using Spectrum Noir Markers. To stamp the lanterns I simply used a couple of drawn lines as my guide and stamped the balloon upside down..

I would like to enter my card at:

Craft Stamper - Pens and Pencils Challenge

  8. Such a great idea, I'm always so impressed when crafters find new and unexpected uses for the stamp sets. Shows you can get so much more mileage out of your stash if you just use your imagination.
