I'm submitting this card to CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#356, Dare 2B Artzy - DTBA#01 Winter challenge, and to Allsorts Challenge - AC#556 where the theme is Take Flight.
I've gone for cool winter colours for this card. I stamped the balloon onto watercolour card (using my MISTI), coloured it with Zig brushes and then restamped with Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then cut it out with the matching die. I flipped the sketch through 180 degrees and created a blue sunray pattern - suggestive of the sky. I stamped the greeting in black and added the hot air balloon with dimensional tape. On the inside I simply stamped a couple of mini hot air balloons and added a greeting.
As well as making a much needed card, I've also been stamping lots of Dyan Revealey images onto media paper to cut out this evening while I watch Dr Who - such a fun way to spend the evening. That's all for now. See you soon.
