It Only Seems Impossible

     QKR Stampede has another new challenge starting this morning and our theme this week is "Balloons."  For me, balloons just lend themselves to celebrations, especially birthdays.  But for this fun guy (Digi 15401 "Floating Away"), it may just mean sticking to something until the impossible is accomplished.  :-D


I chose to use the sketch from Digi Sketch,
turned one-quarter turn.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then I cut the image with a hexagon die set from QuicKutz.  I cut a mat from blue polka dot dp, plus two other hexagons from green and pink dp (The Paper Studio.)  I layered them together, offsetting the green and pink to each side.

     The ribbon is sparkly and sheer, and I added three tiny buttons.  Another relatively CAS design and I really like it.  I AM learning!  :-D

     Challenges:
613 Avenue Create
Bunny Zoe's
Cutie Pie
Cuttlebug Mania
Going Grey with Scrap Creations
Loves Rubber Stamps
Melonheadz Friends
Party Time Tuesday
Path of Positivity
Perfectly Rustics
Pile It On
Robyn's Fetish
Ribbon Girl

     Come play this week!  Don't have a stamp with a balloon?  Check out the QKR Stampede store where you can find either rubber or digi stamps.  Remember, you don't have to use QKR images but if you do, you'll be entered into a separate drawing which increases your chances of winning.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
