Double Trouble Guestie - Love Is In The Air!

This month I'm guesting over at the Double Trouble Challenge Blog!  This is me... I'm the Crazy Cousin...lol!  I chose the pink polka dot dress!  If you've never checked out this fun challenge you definitely should!  It's fun and each time Double Trouble collaborates with another challenge blog and you can easily play along with both which gives you extra chances to win at Double Trouble!  Today we're playing with The Paper Girls!

The challenge this time around...  "Love Peace and Kindness"!  The perfect reason to use this adorable Love You More stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs again!  I've had this idea for a while and was excited to finally get it out of my head this weekend!   Here's how I was inspired:


I started with my rainbow of Distress Oxides blended diagonally across the paper.  Then I splattered on some water and soaked up the excess with a towel.  Then I splattered on some metallic water colors.


It was fun to add some extra balloons including Coffee Shaped Ones!  I made those by stamping a cup from Janes Doodles Coffee Time stamp set (I chose it because the doodled lines and size were just right to go along with those pretty heart balloons from The Rabbit Hole Designs set).  I stamped them on Copic friendly paper and drew the lines along with just the heart balloons from the Love You More set by masking off the rest of the image and then cut them out using the Brother Scan N Cut.


I wasn't sure how they'd look once I layered them on, but I placed them all strategically with the image and drew a few extra lines and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!  And that cute little steam that I added to the cup balloons was made with the steam die from Stamp Simply's Coffee or Tea die set!  I trimmed just a little bit of the length off and it was perfect!


The sentiment was easy to decide on with the theme of this challenge...lol!  


And I added a few clouds and that sweet birdie along with various sizes of clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.


So that's me for today!  Now head on over to the Double Trouble Blog and check out the challenge and what the awesomely talented DT have created for you today!  If you'd like to play along, just create something with the theme Love Is In The Air... use balloons, banners, birds, clouds, butterflies, or anything else that fits the theme!  And if you use something sparkly, glittery, or shiny you'll meet the twist and you can link up with the current challenge over at The Paper Girls.  They are collaborating with Double Trouble this week and if you play along with both, you get extra chances to win at Double Trouble!

Also!  Don't forget that you have until January 25th to hop and comment through the 2 Preview Days and 2 Hop Days for a chance to win the adorable Love You More stamp set I used here and/or the So-Fishticated stamp set and more!  You can start at The Rabbit Hole Designs blog post here for all of the details!
