Inspiration Challenge

It’s time for a new challenge over at The Stamping Boutique!  This time, it’s an inspiration challenge using the image above!  Can you believe that’s a cake?!

I was inspired by the shape and colors on the cake, so chose the Birthday Hot Air Balloon digital stamp for my clean and simple card.  I have to tell you, this particular image was so fun to color!  I placed a star shaped gemstone on the center flag and added some sparkle with a Copic Spica pen on the circles just above the banners/ribbons.  Though the photo doesn’t show it very well, I fussy cut the balloon and popped it up with foam dots to give it a little dimension!

Stamps – The Stamping Boutique (Birthday Hot Air Balloon), SU sentiment
Paper – Paper Trey white CS
Ink – SU Regal Rose (sentiment)
Accessories – star gemstone, foam dots (popped up main image)
Coloring – Copic markers
