Now for the challenge, this fortnight it is a super easy challenge...


with an optional twist of sponging

How about some inspiration...

I decided to use Uniko's Stamp Of The Week (more details HERE about SOTW), which this week is All Occasion Sentiments #2. I started by stamping the large 'HAPPY from the set in SU! Marina Mist ink fairly central on my white CS layer. I then added the small 'BIRTHDAY' from Simply Said Birthday in SU! Going Grey ink.

The balloons from Balloon Bash (back in stock this month) are stamped in VersaMagic Aquatic Splash and I sponged a tiny bit of Turquoise Gem ink to one side of the balloon stamp before stamping. I then fussy cut these out and temporarily adhered them to be able to draw in my balloon strings to create a floating 'HAPPY'. 

Once I was happy with the layout the balloons were given a slight shimmer using clear Wink Of Stella and adhered using foam adhesive. 

Want some more inspiration? The DT at TIME OUT Challenges have some for you here.
