Global Design Project Challenge GPP090 - Hot Air Balloons

Well it's a cold dreary Tuesday here in NJ. It makes me want to be at home on the couch binge watching Shameless on Netflix. I just started that the other day and now it's all I want to watch. But before I got back into it last night, I had a bit of time after the kids went to sleep to play along with this weeks Global Design Project challenge. This week was a sketch challenge. I have fun with sketch challenges too. It helps me try to use different layouts instead of always going back to the same things I always do.

This is a pretty basic sketch so lots of ways you can interpret it. I decided to keep exactly to the sketch. 

Here is my take.

I used the Lift Me Up stamp set along with the new Pattern Party decorative masks and embossing paste. The embossing paste is so fun!! It gives a fun texture to your cards. Last week I used them with sponge daubers for a colorful background. This time I kept it simple and just used the masks with the paste. I can't wait to do more backgrounds with the embossing paste.

Hopefully you can see in this picture the texture the paste gives. The rest of the card is fairly simple just using the stamps from the set. The card was finished off with some bakers twine and metallic shapes.

And I'm excited to say that my card from last week's challenge was picked as one of the additional winners. Stop by to check out the other winners from last week and try out this week's challenge!

Have a nice day!
