Hi Everyone, Happy Saturday! In the wee cold hours of this morning I woke in pain following a Bowen Treatment yesterday, so I sneaked into my craft room not to wake anyone and decided to just have a play with whatever happened to be on or near my desk.
I had the latest Fusion Card Challenge in mind and given I was planning on playing with some of my Unity KOTM Stamps decided I would link up also with their Friday Friends With Flair.
Starting with a piece of white cardstock I misted this with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio's Spray - Carribean Blue and then taking my Gelato's put some stripes across the lower section in colors to tie in with the inspiration photo and sketch of the Fusion Challenge. Using a Wet Paint Brush I water-washed over my stripes.
I stamped and paper pieced the hot air balloons, whilst my cloud was stamped on white and cut out and my sentiment was stamped directly on to the background and then colored in with an Inktense Watercolor Pencil. All of these stamps are from the Unity May 2012 KOTM.
I then rounded the corners with a punch and defined my Gelato stripes with some faux stitching like doodles.
Playing with the bright colors certainly warmed me a little too and the beautiful sunshine we experienced here today certainly would have been perfect for anyone brave enough to take a ride in a hot air balloon.
It is on my list of things to one day do. How about you?
