DCBD 136 ~ A color Challenge!

This is for the diva's coffee break design challenge.. So many colors and so little time! This challenge was pretty fun!

I used the "direct to paper" method for the background.. Meaning I put streaked the ink pad down the paper. I water colored with markers for my main image!

When I look at this stamp set and that balloon, all I can think of is the commercial from tootsie roll. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop? The little guy on the right looks like that guy to me..

I popped the balloon up by using crystal effects.

Happy Wednesday!

I love this card! It seems most people use earth tones or muted colors with this set, but I just love what you've done with these bright colors! Very cool idea, too, to spread the balloon with string over two frames.

I can't get over how different all of our cards are- awesome! I guess it helps having so many colors in our challenge. Nice job on yours!
