Seeing the banner on the CAS(E) This Sketch #218 inspired me to ink up the Balloon Adventure stamp set. I was looking for colour inspiration and went digging in my list of past ColourQ challenge and found #328 to be an interesting combo, made of current colours. I will say, Arielle from ColourQ had an eye for always finding the greatest inspiration pictures and turning them into interesting combo. Some I was instantly drawn into, others I was more dubious about. This is one case where I thought, Those three pinks together? Melon with Coral?? But look how pretty the resulting card is.
My initial design only included two balloons, but the top of the card looked too empty. I planned on adding part of a balloon at the top, but after placing the full balloon extending over the top edge, I though the card was way more interesting that way. That required a custom-made envelope, though, so using the Envelope Punch Board, I created an envelope for a 4-1/2" x 6" card.
This card is also inspired by the Just Add Ink #356 (I paired metallics and balloons).
