I adore the olde world look of these gorgeous images. I can just imagine ladies and gentleman from a bygone era, lining up to take a flight over farmland. I imagined how the sky would look filled with these balloons and that was the inspiration for this card.
To create this card I first stamped some cloud images and a small balloon on a post-it-note and fussy cut them out before adhering them to Shimmery White card. I brayered Tempting Turquoise ink starting at the top and letting the ink run out as I headed toward the bottom. Removing the post-it's, I then stamped my clouds on the card where they had been. I added other stamped clouds, which I die cut using the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits, and popped them up on dimensionals.
I used my Stampin Write Markers to ink up the balloon images on my stamp. I love using the direct to rubber technique as it allows multiple colours on one image.
There are a lot of layers on this card, one of which is Designer Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalogue called Carried Away. This DSP pack coordinates beautifully with the Lift Me Up Bundle and is FREE with a $110NZD product purchase.
I have also changed the orientation of the sentiment stamp. It is actually a square stamp, but I wanted it to stretch across my card. So once again, I used the direct to rubber technique and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up side by side. I have also carried the same artwork over to the inside of my card and used it again on the flap of my envelope.
