INKspired blog hop 22

Dads the word this week!

Welcome to another INKspired Sketch blog hop! 
I'm sure that Narelle has shown you all some beautiful work.
 Wow how the weeks are flying by and its scary to think Christmas is in the back of my mind, approaching super fast! We also have a new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue coming out soon full of CHRISTMAS, so it has got me super excited!! 
(Ok Renee take a deep breath
and calm down!!)
This week however the focus is on my Dad as its his birthday today!
This is the sketch that wonderfully kind Teneale presented us with this week!!
Ok so I must admit I'm a straight lines girl or like a circle kinda girl!!!
This was a testing sketch as I just wanted to straighten all the pieces and layer it up. However I restrained and stayed true to the sketch! Yay me!!
Here is the finished product!
 I do really love this stamp set its so fun and super versatile.
I made the background by cutting the balloon shape out of a piece of scrap
paper with the Balloon framelits.
I then used it as a template and sponged in Real Red, Daffodil Delight,
Smoky Slate and Island Indigo.
I overlapped them so don't be scared to go a little crazy, as at first I was scared to overlap them but in the end it looked much better to have it a little random.

 This final picture is the inside of the card
Here I used both cut outs of the balloon framelits. The out side one as my main template but also the actual balloon shape to put over the balloon I previously sponged to make each image crisp and not blend each colour together with my sponge.
I hope I have given you some inspiration this blog hop.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
However I'm going to go and enjoy some watermelon cake!
Have a great day and go and get some ink on those fingers!
