BE Inspired #36

I'm playing along in the latest Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired Challenge #36!

I just love this inspiration image!

And speaking of inspiration.... I was inspired to try something a little different this time around.  Not only did I make my own embellishment (I used some clay with a mold and I mixed the color myself), I also got kinda crazy and I mixed some 3D Lacquer with a marker refill for a different effect!

I just put some of the Lacquer on the balloon and then added a few drops of a Spectrum Noir refill.  I swirled it all together with an embossing stylus.  I also embossed some clouds in the background - you can click on the pictures to enlarge them so you can see it better!

So, what do you think? Am I crazy? HA! I think the marbled effect came out kinda cool.  I'll be doing it again with different colors next time!

Thanks for stopping by!
