Balloon animals

For the Less is More Challenge: Tangerine, Aqua and white, I've pulled out the Balloon Giraffe from Avery Elle.

I diecut it first, then stamped it with Memento inks : Tangelo and Teal Zeal. It looks more like this than turquoise to me on the photo, but anyway there's no other green/blue in the Memento range.

The Hoera is from Carlijn Design's set Hoera and I stamped it with Versafine Clair ink.
I glued the orange balloon down first, mounted the blue one with foam tape. Somehow they felt off centre to I added a few glittery enamel dots to even out the space. I was also considering another balloon, but chose dots ;-)

  1. You say you found it hard to combine these colours ... but, I have to say, you've ROCKED the challenge - fab image


  2. Super card and a great way to use the colours. The dots work for me x

  3. Wonderful card Maaike! The balloon die cuts are a perfect way to use the colours and they are such sweet images too. Beautifully done. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More xx

  4. Love the way these balloon giraffes are cantering along together :) A lovely card Maaike!

  5. What a great choice of images for this challenge, I love those balloons in these colours, and a great idea to add the dots to balance the design. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
