Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 87~ Colour Challenge

First off, make sure that you head over to Hand Stamped Sentiments today to check out the fabulous inspirations for this AWESOME colour challenge!  I love these three colours together!

 I have to admit that I'm a little embarrassed looking at these photos!  I finished this card a few nights ago and took the photos soon after finishing.  What I didn't notice until just now is that looking at the photos makes me realize that the colour in the balloon bled when I added the dazzling details:(  I'll try and get down to my room to redo the balloon later today, but for now it is the early.... early, early morning and I really need to go to sleep:)

  1. Hi Angela, thank you so much for visiting my blog and your sweet comment! I do love Halloween indeed, maybe because it's not celebrated in the Netherlands (or hardly anyway). Your balloon card looks fabulous, you manage to make a fantastic card with only 3 colours! Hope you have a lovely day, greetz from the Netherlands, Ira

  2. Even with the bleeding your card is super cute!

  3. I didn't even notice the colors bleeding. It looks perfect to me. Such a fun card. Love the details and the dazzling diamonds!

  4. I think your balloon is wonderful the way it is. It's glistening in the sun! I know what it's like to notice things WHILE you're posting something. This is a very fun card, I wouldn't change anything.

  5. I love your card, the design is great and I love that balloon, I have yet to use it! The colors work perfectly! And don't you hate when DD makes ink bleed, I've done that a few times!

  6. Great job on the card!!! The balloon is great!! I know what you mean!! I looked at our color challenge this week, made my card of "Leepin' Frogs" and then realized I was NOT to use Pear Pizzazz. The darn color was Cherry Cobbler!! Of course, I did not realize this until I looked at everyone's card when it went live!!! Ooooops!!! :C) Anyway GREAT JOB!! Amy

  7. Don't you dare re-do that card, it is SOOOOO cool! When I first looked at it I thought the balloon pieces were 3-D pieces of paper, what a cool effect!!! I love how it blends and fades into the other colors, I am a glitter whore though, anything and everything is better with glitter. :)

  8. Angela, When I first saw the balloon on your card it looked 3D. Fabulous job! I didn't notice the bleeding. I thought that how it was intended. Super cute! Now I'll have to see about adding this stamp set to my wish list.


Thanks so much for your comments; they are GREATLY appreciated. They are what keeps me posting from day to day:)
