Up, Up and Away!

Welcome friends! Amanda Wilcox here sharing how I created this card!
I used the Hot Air Balloon die set 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 with Copic markers the bear and bird from Up, Up and Away stamp set 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.
