Who Doesn't Love a CARNIVAL?

Wow!! It's that time again, already - another Drunken Stampers challenge and this week Challenge #145 is a Place  - a CARNIVAL!  Just create a card using anything you would find at a carnival, post it on your blog and link it up in our Drunken Stampers Lounge using our Linky Tool.. You have until Friday!  

This week my choice for the challenge is - BALLOONS!  This is a really simple card that I created using my Quickutz Revolution die cutting machine and a balloon die.  

This is one of the first dies I ever bought and I still love it... and the bright, patterned balloons against the white background just look so fun and cheerful.
The hardest part of the entire card was deciding what paper to use and how many patterns I wanted and where I wanted them to go.

But once I had decided which balloons I wanted and where they were all going - I glued them down and then doodled in some strings with a black pen.

One of the other little tricks I used was outlining all my balloons with a black copic marker to make them pop off the page.  It's quicker and easier than inking the edges and I love the look.

And OF COURSE... the finishing touch (for me) was adding liquid glass here and there to make those balloons look bright and shiny.
Thanks for stopping by to share with me today... now why not pop on over the Drunken Stamper Lounge to see what the other Yellow Canaries created for the Carnival Challenge this week.
