Curtain Call Totally Tassel

I'm playing in the Curtain Call Challenge Totally Tassel today. I used the Sweet Sunday sketch 268 also. I have been hesitating to post this all week because I can't decided if this card is pretty or a Hot Mess!!!! When I saw the inspiration photo I thought of my new Winnie and Walter set The Party , which has the fun balloon/paper lantern things with the tassels.

I used various distress inks to water color the images after I stamped and heat embossed in white. Then I die cut that panel with Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die.

Next I focused on the tag die cut with a MFT die. I stamped the present with Momento London Fog ink and again on the polka dot paper so I could paper piece the bow. I added copic marker coloring. I made a homemade tassel from bakers twine and added it to the tag. My thumb messed up my gold embossed sentiment a little, oops, hahaha. I added some white and gold sequins.

Lator Gators, 


  1. Not a hot mess at all. The look of the watercolor with the white embossing is one of my faves. Hugs!

    1. Thanks Tracy. I can always count on you to be positive, my friend.

  2. Loving the watercolor! This is FABULOUS! Thanks for playing along at the Curtain Call!

  3. Cute and totally fun card. The colors you chose are perfect for it, too! I never would have guessed that you had a "whoopsie" when you stamped the sentiment...because you made it work for you and recovered the card beautifully.

  4. I really like those balloons with the tassels and the embossed white and then added watercolor really makes them pop! Thank you for sharing this at STB!

  5. Sensational card Kim!!! Hot mess!!! No! We really appreciate you joining us at Seize the Birthday and hope you will join us again soon!

  6. Gorgeous water colouring and fabulous colour combo. The white embossing on top is awesome. Great work. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.
