Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink on both the top and bottom of a 6.25″ x 3.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Not Quite Navy ink on both ends of the card stock, not covering the Tempting Turquoise ink entirely.
Masked the sky with a post it note and sponged Not Quite Navy ink along the post it note edge to create my horizon line.
Stamped the balloon upside down on the main image panel in the water area. Also, stamped the balloon on a scrap piece of Whisper White.
Stamped the basket with Basic Black upside down at the bottom of the balloon and in the sky directly above the one in the water.
Cut out the balloon for the sky and adhered it on the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamped the clouds in the sky using Not Quite Navy ink.
Stamped the Birds in the sky using Basic Black ink.
Colored in the clouds and added water lines using a White Gel Pen.
Adhered the main image panel to a 5″ x 6.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Cut 1″ wide strips of Designer series paper and cut a “v” in the end of each one.
Adhered them to the right side of the card stock.
Flipped the card stock over and cut the strips even with the card stock.
Using the piercing mat and piercing tool, pierced holes in a line down the right side of the card stock.
Drew a Basic Black marker line from one hole to the next to create some faux stitching down.
Added 3 brads.
Added a 6.5″ x 10″ Whisper White card to the back. Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be one of pleasure.
I’m off to play with my new stamps that just came in. If you husband hounds you over your Stampin’ Up order size, show him mine, grin. Then continue to tell him how good you have been and you deserve to place another order.
Until my next post. . . . . .
