Washi Balloon Card


Todays card was inspired by Our Creative Corner.  The challenge was a steampunk tic tac toe. I did Letters, Transport and Washi Tape.  The balloon was inspired by SanDee & amelie’s Steampunk Challenges, the theme over there is “Balloon, Balloon”.

The balloon was created by covering a piece of card stock with various washi tape in my stash, and then circle punched.  I added dimension by putting some shadowing with a charcoal pencil and adhering with pop dots.  I then glued various metal gears on top.


This was a quick card.  The background is some lovely Distress Inks with water spritzed on it in the classic Tim Holtz style.  The stamps are 7 Gypsies, Technique Tuesday and Kaiser Craft.  The letters were made with some Distress Ink used with a stencil by The Crafters Workshop.


Ping decided to help take the pictures of this card.
