Up up and away in my beautiful balloon

I thought I would make a male card for this stamp, I really love it but I have no idea what manufacturer it's from, as I bought it off e-bay for a £1 so if you know the brand do let me know. I have decided to enter this for SSIC & Tuesday Taggers, there challenge this week is the theme 'TIME' so many options. I have a clock stamp, and clock charms too, but I thought this fit really well. I don't think there is a prize on offer for TT but do stop by and have a look at the DT if nothing else ,as they are super! I am happy with the out come as I don't often do male cards and I do find them a little difficult.

Here is a close up of the image, I have paper pieced the balloon wioth DPs but i had a lot of playing with more new DI for the back ground, if you look carefully I even coloured the people in the balloon with copics. Thank you for looking and keep your comments comming I really love reading them and appreciate the time you spend here. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Image e-bay. Card stock, SU. Ribbon, Hobby House. Stamped sentiment, studio alphabet. DP, SU, Making Memories & My Minds Eye. Inks, Tim Holtz DI. Copics. Marther Stewart Punch.

Hi Dawn

I seem to remember Creative Expression having a stamp rather like this, have recollections of Jane Nestorenke doing lots of glittery things with it.

Great use of it anyhow, lovely colours.
