Seeing Red

Hi Friends!

It's Challenge time over at Claudia & Company!! This month's super fun challenge is to incorporate the color RED into your project! Easy Peasy, eh? Yes! So I hope that you will join in on all the fun!!

For my card, I've used Birthday Owen---I know, I know, you almost didn't recognize him without his balloons! I decided that I wanted to do a bowling party invite and so I altered the balloons out (just for this card). I've also gathered my bits of red from My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup paper, a PTI button (that I think kinda looks like a bowling ball!) and red thread throughout the different layers of the card.

Altering images is pretty simple and shows just how versatile your favorite stamps (like Puddle Jumpers!!) can be! For this alteration I inked up the rubber, wiped away the balloon with a tissue and then stamped the image. Any small spaces that didn't get stamped, I filled in with my Micron Pen.

And that's my card! I hope you will pop over to the Claudia & Company Blog and check out all the AMAZING inspiration provided by the DT!! And if you haven't picked up the September PJ's yet, you can find them HERE in the DieCutsRUs store! Also, Claudia just started a super duper deal over in the store--for every 10 C & Co stamps you buy (see the store for details), you get one free!! SO COOL! Happy Stamping!

Leave the Girlies some LOVE:
