Flying high

Morning all.  I am shattered!! Was up to the wee hours of the morning crafting with a few gals.  Yes I stayed up after you left!! I had to finish that card didn't I!?

I used the colours (ish) from this week's Colour Q.  I didn't have the exact colours so I went with the closest match.  I teamed it with the FTL clean and simple sketch.

The background stamp is Unity from a kit of the month.  I wasn't keen on the heart 'clouds' in the middle for this particular card, so I covered them with some hot air balloons from a set from Practicing Creativity.  I added dimensional magic to the balloons and raised them up on dimensionals.  I painted the clouds with white dimensional paint.  At first I had the sentiment stamped directly onto the blue, but we all decided it just looked lost, needed a bit extra colour to pop out, so I added the red strip.  I have to say I really struggled with these colours!

Here is a close up of the balloons.

My next post will be a card for my Dad, so Dad if you are looking then look away now!!!


  1. I LOVE the hot air balloons!!! I feel a shopping "spree" heading my way!!! Awesome card!!

  2. What a cute card! I love that you used dimensional paint on the clouds and dimensional magic? That's a new one for me . . . I presume it is like crystal lacquer. Really cute card!!!!

  3. Such a good job you did last night on both cards!And staying up after we left??? WOW. But did we have fun! Thanks for the evening.
