I used the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge IC266 - the Stephen Joseph Gifts website - as the basis for my colours from this particular item on the website. I really loved the colours and the circles reminded me of balloons and my circles border die.
I am also playing the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club January Challenge - but as the Challenge is only open to Fan Club Members (ie: you have paid to join the SCS Fan Club), part of the rules is that you are not allowed discuss the Challenge Themes and details outside the Fan Club - which is not to exclude you (my Blogging friends), but merely following the rules. I joined a few months ago so I could put something back into the website which I love so much!!
Here is a close-up piccy of the balloons:
And here is my stepped up version:
I stamped the image twice, then cut out just the balloons and popped them up on mounts (dimensionals). I used various sizes of mounts so the red balloon is the lowest in height and the blue balloon is the highest. After diecutting the blue border and adding the Scor-Pal line, I ran the blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss dots embossing folder. The ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy. Here is a close-up piccy so you can see the dimension of the balloons:
ETA: In response to Shaz's question: I use Google Picasa (free download from the Internet) to add my details on my photos.
