Waving Hello

Hello there, have you seen that Stacey Yacula has a new release over at Purple Onion Designs? It is called Happy Trails and it is absolutely adorable! Today I have a card to share using the super cute Up & Away Hot Air Balloon.

I started off by die cutting a panel of white cardstock using the largest die in the WPlus9 Gift Card Layers die collection. I then stamped the hot air balloon on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped it on to mask paper. I cut this out and placed it over the image. Using the MFT Cloud Stencil, I then added clouds in to the background with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink.
The mask was removed and then I coloured the image with Copic Markers. As you can see, I went with a rainbow colour scheme for the balloon. This panel was added to a white A2 card base with ATG. I took the waving hello sentiment (from the Journey Sentiments Set) and stamped this on to a separate piece of cardstock with Tuxedo Black. This was cut out and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew which dries clear. I made these ahead of time, allowed to dry and adhered them with Multi Medium Matte.
