Up and Away

Hello Everyone, this is my design team
contribution for
The Theme this month is
Anything Goes

The digi stamp is "Hot Air Balloon"
 from Pattie's Creations.


For my card, I colored the image with colored pencils and then topped various sections of the balloon with a Wink of Stella.  I then fussy cut the balloon out.
The background was created by stamping clouds by Neat and Tangled with embossing ink and white embossing powder.  I then smudged Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress ink and let that dry. Then smudged Broken China oxide in on top of that and wiped off any ink on the clouds.
From black card stock I cut the frame using MFT rectangle die.  
The ribbon banner was stamped and fussy cut on maroon cs and then entirely covered in clear embossing ink and powder for a glossy finish.  
Everything was layered on a maroon side fold cs base.  The banner was added with dimensional squares so that it floats on the balloon.  With the glitter and shine it's so much fun !!
I hope you play along with us at Pattie's Creations and I wish you all the best of luck !!
