Inkspirational - Challenge #19


You know, put a pink glittery balloon on a gift bag and I'd be happy. Nope, it doesn't take a lot for me :) Of course, one that holds a gift card makes me a little happier and this one does slip out of the bag for ease of shopping! :)

 I love this background paper, it's a flocked embossed texture that feels so good to run your fingers over.
Added lace to the inside of the bag to emulate tissue paper. I do recommend adding a bit of wax paper into the bag to keep the glue from adhering the bag together. The handle is created the same way from a piece of twine.

The balloon is sitting on a glue dot and I tried to shape the balloon over it to give it a more rounded look. I spread some stickles over the balloon and then outlined with the same color. Filled in with some glossy accents.

Oh a pink glitter balloon how delightful. Have you tried shaping the balloon before sticking it on by placing unsidedown on a sponge mat and gently rubbing with a large embossing tool in circles? Hope I'm not doing the "sucking eggs" trick here. HUGS - BJ

How fun! Your balloon turned out great and does look rounded that way! I think that is a great embossing folder you used too. Great gift card holder, so dainty too!

Loved this cute gift card holder. (And thx for the wax paper tip!). Your lace trim on the bag was a wonderful accessory, along with the glossy accents on the balloon. Really liked the soft pinks & greens on this one. TFS
