Balloon Bash Bokeh for What Will You Stamp?

I'm so excited to announce that I have been asked to join the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog Design Team and today is the beginning of this new adventure.  All What Will You Stamp? Design Team members will be using the same Stampin' Up! stamp set but putting their own unique spin on it. 

The Bokeh technique is so popular right now and I decided to see if I could use that technique combined with the Stampin' Up! Balloon Bash stamp set.  I sponged my background using Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz ink and then I changed things up a little by using the balloon stamps to replace the white circles normally seen on the Bokeh technique.  I love the way this turned out...let me know what you think!


Balloon Bash is a fun stamp set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog and I can't wait to see what the other members of the Design Team do with it.  If you want to see everyone's creative vision for Balloon Bash check out the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog and then join in on the fun by making your own creation and posting it to the blog.


 
To add a little more fun this week, all Design Team members will be giving away some Blog Candy so make sure you check them all out and, for your chance to win, leave us some love with your comments before 9 PM PST/Midnight EST on Saturday, March 7.  I'll be choosing my winner using Random.org and announcing here on Monday, March 9.  Here's what you can win.....
 
Thanks so much for visiting with me today and be sure to come back every Monday to see What I Will Stamp!!
