Balloon Travel

I bought the cutest little stamp last week that was included with my local scrapbook store, Scrapendipity's Card Of The Month Kit!

The first card was the one made with the kit, following the directions that were included. I did, however, stamp on watercolour paper and use Distress Markers to colour in the parts of the image that weren't paper-pieced.

I used a Simple Stories 6x6 paper pad for the cloud background to create the next card. I love this cloud paper!

And, for the last card I used a piece of Fancy Pants Design paper for the background.  I thought the I<3U was too cute and I made sure to place it in the bottom right corner.

I used a technique Jennifer McGuire showed in the Watercolor for Cardmakers class at Onlinecardclasses.com, and used Perfect Pearls mist instead of water and Distress Markers to watercolour some of the areas I wanted sparkly.

Of course, I had to enter it into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Travel! Who wouldn't want to take a balloon ride to get to their destination?!
