Punky Balloons


Morning Peeps, Saturday morning and our new challenge at Allsorts where our host is Lynne and the theme of 'Travel', time to think of holiday's maybe? Our sponsor is Swedish House Crafts who will be giving a £10 store voucher plus a surprise gift to this weeks lucky winner.

This is a recent Chocolate Baroque sample made for Hochanda TV, Steampunk always rather alarms me as I feel out of my depth with it, but was reasonable happy how this one turned out. The background is Distress Oxides and Gesso, then a mixture of stamps used to build up the card and the Punky Balloons paper pieced.

And today it's a the 15 minute cards post over at the Chocolate Baroque blog and here are my offering............



Have a good weekend all and please do pop over the the challenge blog to see what my team mates have created to inspire you.

Gorgeous card and I think you've done a great job with the Steampunk one. It's very bright and beautiful. I don't know if I dare say it but I'm just looking out of my window and the sun's shining. Let's hope it stays like that! Wishing you a happy weekend x

Marianne said...

Such a lovely array of cards, Brenda, and your Steampunk card turned out so happy and cheerful. I don't think it's so very different from you normal style, except for the choice of stamps.
Have a good weekend!

Ciao Brenda, la tua card con le mongolfiere è strabiliante, che bellezza!!! Una grande ispirazione! Io non amo particolarmente lo stile steampunk, ma questa card è davvero favolosa!
Molto belle anche le cards da 15 minuti (io sono negata, di solito ho bisogno di almeno un'ora soltanto per decidermi... LOL :D ) Che bei sentiments! Mi piace specialmente quella in rosa, è molto dolce.
Spero che tu passi una buona Domenica e che tutto fili liscio per la tua salute...
Grandi abbracci!
