Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

hello all for this weeks challenge we had to make our cards 3D well straight away i thought no way i can't do that, but then i thought no i will give it a go. the only way i have acheived the 3d look is by doubling up on the balloons on the lovely tilda so i hope this counts oh and i suppose the balloon wire too??

I've used spotty paper by no name so frustrating when there is no compnay on backs of paper. then tilda coloured in with H20's and stickles. ribbon from stash and then blue balloon from nesties in cuttlebug and bended wire to make it look like balloon ribbon and then added the word party from a peel off.

what a little production!

hiya all well after a clear out i had noticed i had loads of decoupage sets and just one of those things you never get round to doing, well the last couple of days i just wanted to have them done made and ready for selling so here they are!!

they were all made really simply as wanted out the way to be honest so not that much work gone into them. mainly daisy and dandelion collection, forever friends sets used lots of peel offs and backing papers from again either forever friends or daisy and dandelion collection. so a huge bulk of them out the way got a couple of other sets to do but as i lilke them might put more effort into them lol.
