The Paper Players - PP384 - A Color Challenge from Joanne

This is COLOR week over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, Joanne, is asking us to create a card in “any shade of pink”. I loved the inspiration photo and decided I needed an ombre effect in pink.   I stamped solid balloons randomly in four shades of pigment pink ink from Mama Elephant.  The sentiment is die cut from black Mirracard to really pop!

Supplies: Judikins balloon, Altenew Happy Birthday, Mama Elephant Femme Frames, Mama Elephant pigment ink, black Mirracard

    My commenting on the gallery got away with me last week so I’m late to the comment party I’m afraid – please forgive me Eliz! I love the ombre balloons in so many shades of pink and the black mirrored foil diecut really stands out – a fabulous card for my ‘Shades of Pink’ challenge.

    Elizabeth your burst of balloons (is there a collective noun for balloons?!) is gorgeous. I love how you stamped the balloons over each other – it really looks as though they are floating. Fabulous card!

    Elizabeth for some reason I struggle with balloons, but you’ve stamped an absolutely perfect background with them! I love the different shades of pink!

  4. Annie A. says:

    Wonderful ombre stamping layered perfectly! This is such a fun and happy birthday card. Hope you’re having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie

    I like your ombre bunch of balloons, especially contrasted with the bold sentiment. The scalloped edge is a sweet detail.

    I absolutely love your background! Looks amazing (plus red is my favourite colour). Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.
