Not only have I had a hard time with my Internet connection lately, but my mojo seems to have taken a hike too! However, when I saw the sketch at this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#227 challenge, I had an idea. I've not adhered to the sketch, but it's generally the same layout! I stamped a couple of hot air balloons on watercolour card, heat embossed them and coloured them with Zig clean colour brushes. I used co-ordinating dies to cut them both out. I was going to adhere them flat to the card, but decided to added a cloudy panel to represent the sky. I attached the panel with dimensional tape and adhered the balloons to the panel.Both hot air balloons are flying off the edge of the cloudy panel! I drew on some birds flying in the sky and finished the card with a bold statement, stamped on vellum and heat embossed with clear powder. On the inside I cut a mat layer of dark aqua card. On the white panel I stamped another balloon, going off the edge, and a simple sentiment.
Do visit The Male Room blog to see more inspiration projects from the rest of the team - they are all just fabulous. I'm going to submit this card to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#11, where the theme is Anything Goes.
You still have time to play along with our current challenge and create a masculine project with an OFF THE EDGE technique. Deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 20th June, that's 7.00pm EDT here in the States. Have fun!!!
It's take me most of the day to get this post typed up! Now to post it and link to the challenges. Here's hoping the Internet connections plays nicely!!!!
