Artsy Balloon Ride

Ok, so I just had to make one more card with this cute balloon stamp!! It is a Little Darling's stamp, which was included in my Card of the Month kit from my LSS, and I followed the Tall & Skinny sketch from Mojo Monday for this week.

For the background I used a Tim Holtz stencil with two yellow colours of Distress Inks sponged over.  I adore this stencil!! I love the way it looks like the sun is shining into her face :)

I used a combination of paper-piecing, Distress Markers, and coloured pencils to colour in the image and popped her up with foam dots after fussy cutting.

I had to pull out my Artsy stamps for my travel themed sentiments - The Journey is from Tim Holtz and the Explore ticket is by Kaisercraft.  I'm not sure where the postcard stamp came from.  The pretty floral paper is from Jillybean Soup.

I hope you are all enjoying your week so far! I have been having fun getting some cards done - unfortunately I have not got the laundry done, lol.  Oh well, I guess it'll still be there tomorrow!

Happy crafting!
