Retro Balloons...


After having a week off last week while on holiday, I'm back and playing along with this week's fun ColourQ challenge...

I struggled with this combination and made one card that I really didn't like, so decided to try again! I searched through my stamp sets for inspiration, and when I saw Papertrey's Up, Up & Away set, I knew I could do something with those balloons. I had lots of fun colouring with this one...

I used a combination of Stampin Up inks and Inktense pencils as I didn't have Summer Starfruit or Bravo Burgundy inks so I chose pencils that were closest to those colorus. Love Inktense pencils!! I used this week's Retro Sketch for my layout...

Make sure you check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team this week!

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. Stunning card--those balloons were a fantastic choice. I also struggled with these colors together. I love how your card turned out.

  2. What a gorgeous card and I love that color combo!

  3. This card turned out perfect, Amy, would not have known that you did not have those inks. Love your balloons and the coloring you did! Have a wonderful Thursday!

  4. Glad I wasn't the only one to struggle with this one Amy - such a great take on the RS...those balloons are so richly coloured - they look gorgeous!

  5. Amy you coloured the balloons beautifully! Thank you for sharing with us at RetroSketches!
