Flying By

Hello everyone! IT's time for another blog hop at Brutus Monroe and this week are featuring the cutest balloons and the surface inks.


I stamped both the hot air balloons from the Balloon Animals stamp set a few times and colored them with pencils. I them added a coat of clear wink of stella for a subtle shimmer. I fussy cut all the balloons after it dried and colored the edges with my black Styelefile marker. I stamped and cut out the sentiment. I took a piece of white card stock and inked it with a light layer of Rock Candy Surface ink. I then stamped and cut out a cloud and used it to mask a few clouds and sponged Rock Candy ink some more. I adhered the inked panel on to a top folding A2 card base. Then I adhered the sentiment and the larger balloons with foam tape. I adhered the smaller balloons with glue. I imagined that the smaller balloons are a little far away and the bigger ones are near.

I hope you like this card! Please do visit the Brutus Monroe blog to see the wonderful creations by the rest of the team and start hopping. Next on the hop is Lori and here's her blog post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
