Birthday Balloons

Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday our optional challenge theme or twist this week is to use "Your favorite colors". Our sponsor for May is Sami Stamps.

I used an image called "Giraffe Birthday Balloon". I colored it with Promarkers and used my favorite colors - brown, orange and purple - in a color combo I've never tried before. The stars on the image are made using a Memory Box stencil and distress ink.


The paper was a freebie with a magazine, the only piece I had left, and I attached the circle cut image onto a doily.
The stars are die cut out and I doodled with a black pen around the edges of some of them and added some purple pearls.




This card is also for these challenges:
1) Incy Wincy Designs - Exotic Animals
2) Inky Impressions - #210 Faux Stitching/Doodling
3) Natalie and Amy's Challenge - #32 Animals
4) Inky Chicks - #51 - Pearls
5) Paper Minutes - #384 - Stencil

This is an unusual colours combo, but these three match so well! Also the holed stars look great and are unusual! Very creative! Love the stiched circle on the doily and the cute giraffe with balloon. All the papers and the little stars with the pearls inside look so pretty!

This is darling, and I hope you have a real special youngster to send it to. Cause it needs to be loved a lot! Would never think to use these colors, but they work well together, for lots of bright cheer. Love the stenciled stars too. Just as cute as can be, and I noticed the tiny pearl centers in the stars! TFS & Hugs.

I love this image - it reminds me of Gerald from the kid's book 'Giraffe's can't dance' - and the colour combo is perfect.

Asha said...

I've been afraid to use yellow and purple together for fear of being tooo gaudy. But it actually works. This is such a fun card.
