Bird Balloon

 (If you are looking for the Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge, scroll down!

It's Hambo Hoedown time!

This week, the challenge is "Chevron".  I used this bright, fun patterned paper from Stella & Rose to meet this requirement.

I chose to work with the Hambo digital image called "Bird Balloon".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  Using the out-of-the-box technique, I cut the image panel with a Nestabilities oval die.  I paper pierced around this oval as well.  I framed the image panel with burnt orange cardstock.

Then using the patterned paper from Stella & Rose, I made the large card panel.  Paper piercing was done, as well as faux stitching with a color pencil.  This panel was framed with burnt orange cardstock. 

The Hambo sentiment comes with the digital image of "Bird Balloon"  It too was framed with the burnt orange cardstock.  A sheer beige bow was placed onto the card as a final touch to the card.

I hope you can join in on all of the fun with us at the Hoedown this week. All of the challenge details can be found right here on the Hoedown Blog.  Remember you must use Hambo images to play along...but that's easy to do (there are some freebies here if you don't have any). If you play along this week, you will be sent next week's Hoedown image for free. 

Also, don't forget about a very special blog hop this Friday.  The Bacon Bits are going to be hopping with all of our Hambo fans.  Should be quite the show!
