Balloon Bash

Hi and welcome back for the reminder post over at Tag You're It, where I'm Guest Designer for this challenge.  Here's another look at Bobby's fabulous tag:

Last week I focused on the stripes and stars in Bobby's tag.  This week I decided to play around with the layout - in particular the crossover of the flags.

I pulled out my NBUS balloon dies from PTI and went to work.  I die-cut the balloons from navy, red and yellow cardstock then used the co-ordinating inks to sponge one side to give some shading (hard to see in the photo!).  Once that was done, I colored them with Wink of Stella - and got a bit heavy-handed unfortunately!

The balloon strings were cut with Slate cardstock and I positioned the stamped and cut-out sentiment on the cross-over point of the strings.

And that's it!  Thanks for visiting.  Check out the Tag You're It blog as there is more wonderful inspiration there for you.

There's nothing unfortunate about a lot of sparkle! I bet these balloons look extra special in real life!
