So yesterday I made this card for my favorite Tuesday challenges. After I made it, I really hated it, and I thought, "There's no way I'm entering it into these challenges because I play to win, and this is not winning material." At least I try to play to win, not that I ever do. It's ok though, I still have lots of fun. But, I always try to do my best and this was not my best. So I just let it sit overnight. This morning when I woke up, I had an idea to cover the balloon animal with liquid glass to make it look more balloony. After I did that, I thought it gave it just the right touch. So, I'm entering it. It may or may not be a winner, but at least it's decent enough to share.
I used a couple of ovals cut from my Cricut that I haven't been using much lately for the machine challenge at Shopping Our Stash. I used the bunny balloon animal for the jumpy challenge at CASology. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning, and I rotated it so the bunny would fit nicely.
I really wanted to use more Lagoon on this card. I chose the colors Lagoon, Glacier and Sorbet for the color challenge at CAS Colors and Sketches. I ended up cutting out the scalloped oval in Glacier and using Lagoon for the sentiments and the twine. But they were so thin that the lagoon ended up looking lighter, more like the Glacier. So that's one thing that was a little disappointing about the way it turned out. Also, I didn't have anything to tie the Sorbet into, and it stamps more orangy than I like. It should be a really pretty coral color.
Anyway, it is what it is, and it will make a nice birthday card for a baby. So enjoy, and come play with me at these awesome Tuesday challenges!
