Hi, I procrastinated too long on last weeks challenge. Dang it! Oh well here is this week Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. The challenge this week is to use a kite or balloon. I bought this cartridge specifically for this balloon. This idea popped into my head. You know the kind that hits at 4 am and doesn't allow you to sleep anymore. Then more ideas, and things that need to be done start building, until finally you have to get out of bed, and get something done. Even if it's just jotting down a to do lists! Anyway, I am glad that my idea worked. Gotta love that.
Cartridge: Summer in Paris
Paper: Acetate, DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, white
Accessories: Ribbon, Ribbon Slide
Phrase: computer generated
I used my Cricut to cut the balloon in white, crumb cake, also an acetate sheet. I adhered the paper to the acetate sheet. then colored behind. That way I didn't have to worry about staying perfectly in the lines. After coloring was done I glued the colored part onto a white piece of paper, that way the colors show up. What you end up is kind of stained glass hot air balloon.
