Share Joy Challenge #25

Hey there!

This weeks Share Joy Challenge has a really Spring-like color combination, that I thought I would try. 

I chose the adorable Balloon Buddies set, and coordinating dies, to create a little scene. I started by masking a portion of a white card base, and inking it with a couple of shades of Blue Distress Inks. I then flicked on some white paint, and allowed it to dry.

I die cut a circle from a piece of light blue card stock, and tied a bit of twine around the top, popping the whole piece up on the card front. I adhered my stamped, colored, and die cut dog, as well as a cluster of balloons, and a little black thread bow.

I hope to see what you do with this weeks challenge! There are so many possibilities! Just in case you aren't familiar with the details, I have added them below. Have a great day!
