Balloon Duo Congratulations...

Hi there,

I've had a pretty hectic couple of weeks so haven't had a lot of time to 'play' but I did manage to get something made this afternoon for the Dynamic Duo and Paper Players challenges.

I haven't done vintage/shabby chic in a while so I went in that direction, adding Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla as my neutrals...

I used the fabulous Up, Up & Away set from the Summer mini catty, stamped first in Bashful Blue then with the pattern over the top in Marina Mist. I cut them out, sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges and covered with Heat & Stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The papers are from the Beau Chateau pack. I added my favourite accessories (well apart from buttons lol!) - lace, pearls and seam binding ribbon.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Curly Cute
Ink: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper: Beau Chateau dsp, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Tools: Circles #2 die, Perfect Pennants die, Distressing tool, heat & stick powder
Accessories: Lace trim, pearls, Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon, dazzling diamonds glitter

Thanks for stopping by!
