Stamp Review Crew...Balloon Celebrations Edition!

 Stamp Review Crew

Happy Monday everyone! We have another fun hop happening over at the Stamp Review Crew and this one is all about the "Balloon Celebration" bundle. I love how fun and easy to use this set is, so many cute elements and a punch as well.
I tried a new technique for this one, inking the solid image balloon in one colour and then stamping a second time in a deeper colour, but partially removing some of the ink by blotting with paper towel before stamping...In hindsight l probably could have gone even darker with the second shade, but l'm still happy with these and the 7yr old grandson seemed to think it was ok..:0)

You may have just arrived from the fabulous blog of Linda Callahan and her inspiring creations. But if you have just landed here and would like to start at the begining just click on the stamp review crew banner above and go from there.
If you are happily hopping you can continue by hitting the next banner below!

Next on the hop is the lovely and talented Kelly Kent
