Watercolor Hot Air Balloons

So we all pin more than we create but sometimes you come across a pin on Pinterest that makes you stop what you are doing and try it.  That is what happened when I came across this card by Emma Goddard.  Check out her blog entry HERE.

I had a lot of scraps left around after my online party so I loved that I could use the leftovers to make something new.  So this card is like next day soup.  :)

My version is done just on a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Whisper White.  I used the stencil left over after I cut out my balloon parts using the Up and Away Thinlits.  Using my Watercolor Pencils, I traced each layer and then lightly colored in the center.  Then I used a blender pen to shade them in.  The saying is stamped on a 1" strip of Whisper White and layered on the card using dimensionals after creating a banner end using the Triple Banner Punch.  Such a fun card and can't wait to try it on Watercolor Paper too!

  • Cardstock: Whisper White
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamp Set: Lift Me Up
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Cutting Mats and Platform, Up and Away Thinlit Dies, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, Triple Banner Punch, Dimensionals
