Balloon Celebration - Global Design Project Theme Challenge #gdp023

Have you noticed how popular balloons are at the moment? They are everywhere! The Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue 2016, is the best place to start for all your Balloon making projects. From stamps, to coordinating punches and the dreamiest Designer Series Paper - there is something for everyone and something to create for every occasion. 
The Global Design Project #gdp023 have a 'Theme Challenge' this week, and I bet you won't be able to guess what the 'Theme' is? Drumroll...

Tada! And here is my 'Balloon Theme' creation for this week;
I have used 'Vellum Cardstock' for the balloons which I stamped, heat embossed using White Embossing Powder & Dazzling Diamonds Glitter - and punched out my balloons using the 'Balloon Celebrate' Bundle.
I instantly thought of the clouds from the 'Shine On Specialty' Designer Series Paper. (Divine) I knew the DSP would be a perfect background for my Vellum Balloons. If you look closely, I have outlined all of the clouds using the White Signo Uni-Ball gel pen. It's as good as colouring in! Fiddly, but I am really happy with the outcome.
Another close up of the embossed balloons (I wish you could capture the 'bling' from the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter). The Whisper White Thick Cardstock, Kraft & Silver are a beautiful combination for an Engagement or Wedding. By changing the sentiment - this creation could be for any occasion.
I edged the sentiment using the Fine Tip Glue Pen dipping the edges into the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The Silver Metallic Thread was used for tying the strings to the balloons, and the tiny bow to tie the strings together.

Thankyou for visiting my blog. I love it when you do. Feel free to leave me a comment. I love them. D x
