After I had completed my Up & Away blog and my admin jobs yesterday, I went into my studio to play with the hot air balloon bundle a bit more!
I wanted to make one with a plain background so I could put sunshine coming in the corner.
This really is not the kind of bundle that I go for in a big way, but I’m having trouble putting it down.
I keep having different ideas coming into my mind “I wonder what it would look like…………..??”
I think I’m going have to do the same as I did with my Copper Embossing Powder some time ago; that’s hide the bundle for a little while.
As I was making the video, I thought this would be a great card to make for a man, especially if you use the colours of his favourite team’s strip to line the balloon!!
Photographs 1 - 2: this is the card I made on the video
Photographs 3 - 4: this is the first sunshine card I made.
The stamp is from the Wherever You Go Stamp Set and the image looks like hazy sunshine.
I die some clouds and sponged the edges with Smokey Slate Ink, and daubed some ink on the clouds to make them look like rain clouds.
On this occasion I remembered to paint the actual balloon with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen BEFORE I started adhering the labels.
I stamped the sunshine and the small balloon on the inside of the card.
On this card I decided not to use any Wink of Stella, so I could show all three options.
I didn’t think about it while I was working on the card but once I was ready to add the clouds, I thought it looks like snow!
When I was preparing the clouds, I only sponged the edges so they looked more like snow clouds, not rain clouds as previously!
