Celebrate Today

Today is my Paper Pumpkin play date.  I’ve had a couple of days to play with this month’s kit and we’ll be making two of my alternate ideas this afternoon.  But for you, I have a simple, one layer card that I made using Celebrate Today.

Instead of using layers to create some depth, I employed masking.  And since there are coordinating framelits — zippy, skippy I had a mask.

By stamping my center balloon first, I was able to easily place all three balloons.  And stamping the left and right balloons in a lighter color made the center balloon pop.

I sponged in a little extra ink on the “lower” balloons where they meet the “top” balloon. For the balloon strings, I stamped once in a light shade and then again in a darker shade making sure to offset the second stamped image.  This helps to give a little dimension.

Gotta run.  It’s Paper Pumpkin play date time!
