Trying a New Challenge

Today, I thought I would try making a card for a new challenge called Just Add Ink, which posts a new challenge every Friday. The deadline to enter isn't until Wednesday and the winner is announced Thursday. There is still plenty of time to enter!!

This weeks challenge is to make a paper crafted item based on the sketch below. I decided to have a little fun and exercise some creativity in the process!! I recently bought the Stampin' Up! Balloons set. I wanted to break it out and start using it. The monkey is from The Paper Company and the balloons are from Lawn Fawn. I really like to be versatile with my stamps!!

I used Stampin' Up! ink and sponge daubers to create the sky and some baker's twine for the string on the balloons. Hope you enjoy!!







Recipe
Paper: Stampin' Up!, Paper Trey Ink
Ink: Stampin' Up!, Memento
Stamps: Stampin' Up!, The Paper Company, Lawn Fawn
