Better Balloons

Welcome to September is Stamping Month: Day Six the theme is "Travel".  Tina ROCKS! This theme gave me a second chance at a previous failed mani.  I am 100% more impressed with the result this time than my earlier attempt!

  1. i just love clouds, you made them so well. Balloons are also nice and unusual travel choice ;)

    1. Thanks Alesya, it was my second attempt trying this combination and I think it went much better this time! I didn't have any of the obvious travel choices for stamping, so I went with the unusual. And I still can't get over your clever trick of drawing onto the stamper ( Brilliance <3

    2. hahahhha, actually at first t wanted to do decal... but they all turned out too big, so than i was like, what I heck? let me just try to stamp it directly... and it worked... And the best part of drawing on the stamper, you can clean it easily and make as many attempts to draw as you wish.

    3. Oooh, I love trying new things out like that, sometimes you get wonderful results. Normally I get in a huge mess though <3
