Birthday Balloons

It's a busy stamping week ahead my friends!! Are you ready?  Let's start this week off with a fun Kitchen Sink Stamps challenge.  Have you visited the new KSS Forum?  There are daily challenges and sources of information there for you to enjoy and play along with - you really should check it out!  Every Monday, Lynn will be sharing her ideas for 10 minute cards.  This is such a great way to stock up on cards!!  Take a look at her idea today, it involves some simple masking and a one layer card!

I used the brand new set Multi-Step Bunch O' Balloons for my one layer card.  Instead of reverse masking like Lynn did, I masked my stamped balloons and my shape so that I could sponge some "sky" around the balloons. The sentiment is from Never a Loss 4 Words and I did a bit of "shadow" stamping (stamped it first in a dark color and then again with a lighter color moved over slightly). 

Take a look at all the great cards today by the KSS Crew and make a point to visit the Forum and join us for a challenge or two!! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting! :)
