Lift Your Spirits!

Here's a stamp set from our Holidays From the Heart gift guide that also happens to be a sneak peek at something from the Spring 2014 Idea Book! It's an adorable hot air balloon that is bound to make you think about floating over beautiful scenery!

I've also used the colors from this week's Color My Heart challenge: Gypsy and Buttercup!



To color the hot air balloon I used a water pen and the inks. Tip: with the ink pad still closed, squeeze it a few time then open. There will be ink in the lid just ready to use with a water pen or brush! The image itself is stamped is Slate pigment ink and clear embossed. This makes it really easy when you color the image!

The background clouds are stamped in Slate ink and all cardstock edges are inked in Slate as well. I just rubbed the edge on the stamp pad to give a little definition and keep a more crisp look.

The hot air balloon layer is on foam squares. The message banner is glued to the hot air balloon layer with just a bit of help from foam squares on the outside edge to keep it level.
