Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge No 19

Hi, this is my card design for the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics Sketch Challenge. There is still time to enter, a visit to their blog is well worth checking out.

I had in mind a design using the Half Pint Heroines Stamp set, recently aquired from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Using a colour scheme and background stamps inspired by the sixties, all flower power and funky (well hopefully )

The backgrounds were stamped using You're a Doll flowers, Dainty Doilies, and Zig Zag backgrounder, before being die cut in rounded corner shapes.
The sentiment came from the Ocean Bound stamp set.

The balloon came from Half Pint Heroines set and coloured, with the addition of a flower cut with the dies to suit and a pearl centre coloured with copics and little dots of sparkle on the balloon.

All mounted up on an embossed sheet of kraft card, with more funky flowers, finished with a brayer colour.

The card has been created for a friends daughter who is going to take some time out travelling.

I then went on to stamp up a background sheet in a plaid design using Pic-Nic patterns
Adding a die cut Little Lantern, with sentiment from Light of the World and Country Labels no 4 mounting.

Hope that you enjoyed my designs
Thank you for visiting,

I have just noticed that my link up on Waltzingmouse Fanatics Blog is showing my alpaca blog  name, my mistake, I usually change to Kathy C, but I must have missed it this time.


  1. Swell cards - but really - I LOVE how you combined that sentiment and the air balloon image! Such a perfect pairing!

  2. Kathy - both your cards are just fab. I do like the funky, flower power on your hot air balloon card. But it's the lantern card that I just love. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  3. Another couple of fabulous cards Kathy. I can't choose between them this time.
    Thanks for your continued support of our challenge.
