I tried to incorporate the hot air balloon and the clouds, as well as the green and blue of AJ's card below, which was the one that I lifted/cased. I also threw in some hearts for good measure lol.
I first inked up my balloon with Hero Arts Pool ink and then applied some Tide Pool on the edges and Cup O' Joe on the basket before stamping on Neenah solar white cardstock. I used a stamp positioner to stamp a second time for a more solid image. I then masked the balloon and stamped the clouds from the same stamp set in Soft Pool. I matted the image piece on another piece of Neenah after rubbing the edges with the same Pool ink and rounding the corners of both pieces with my corner chomper. The patterned paper is from the Bubblegum Hills 6 1/2" paper pad collection by Kaisercraft. I finished the card off with a few rhinestones and hearts from my stash.
Both our cards are based on the following TMS sketch, which is an oldie (#161) revisited.
Since my main image already includes a prominent sentiment, I did not add a sentiment as a separate element.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
