When is a balloon not a balloon???

Good Evening.
And it's Friday which means 2 days off for me!
It promises to be a good weekend with going over to help Maria move into her new premises along with other very willing volunteers.

Anyway I thought I would blog another of the samples I did for the last Clarity weekend shows and do the other one I did using the balloon stamp set.

I wanted something completely different so...

I started off by stamping and embossing in bronze the large balloon. The smaller balloon was embossed in silver.

I then cut them all out and the small balloon was cut into a circle.
I then cut a piece of cream card to 18 x 18 cm found a sentiment and heat embossed it in bronze in one corner.
I cut a piece of bronze coloured card 10 19x19 cm and added this to the 20x20cm card blank
Once this was on I layered the card with the sentiment on it and then arranged the balloons in the opposite corner to the sentiment using silicon adhesive
And here is the finished card.
So the balloon becomes a flower!
Have a nice weekend
Happy Crafting
