Color My Heart Color Dare - Juniper, Sunset, Smokey Plum, Cranberry, Honey
Using Close To My Heart alcohol markers to color in the hot air balloon from the Lifting Spirits (C1570) stamp set was the inspiration that began this card.
There was a sponging technique using torn paper towel for clouds I wanted to try, so a Juniper piece for the sky, sponged with Juniper ink became the backdrop. To add more color I matted this Juniper piece with Sunset, Honey, and Smokey Plum (I love this deep purple color). The banner flag and clouds were stamped in black ink and were fussy cut out - yes scissors and some quiet time makes me happy. The hot air balloon was cut out, too.
The sun is a Cricut Artiste image, popping the center with 3D Foam Tape added a little more depth. One cloud, the hot air balloon and the flag banner were also popped up.and sentiment from Lifting Spirits - C1570.
