Welcome friends. I have another card featuring the April release from Pixi Dust Designs. Today I used the Hot Air Balloon dies without making it a shaker but still included sweet images from Up, Up and Away stamp set.. I love decorating this balloon. There are so many options that one idea just leads to another.
After die cutting all of my hot air balloon parts, I ink blended them with distress oxide inks and splattered them with water. I used liquid glue to adhere the pieces. Then I stamped and colored the bear and bird from Up, Up and Away, colored it with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered him to the balloon with liquid glue as well.
For my background, I used a textured glitter cardstock from my stash, die cut some clouds and added them to the background. Using my balloon as a guide I stamped a sentiment in the lower left corner before popping the balloon up with foam tape.
For finishing touches, I added Touch of Gloss to the bear’s eyes and nose and the bird’s beak. Then I added a little pink clay heart above the bear and some gold baubles on the ribbon on the balloon.
Be sure to check out the sweet April release from Pixi Dust Designs if you haven’t yet. It’s very fun!
