...In the Air

This new Penny Black stamp, 40-093 ...In the Air, is so fun to work with.  And one thing I really love about it is that most of the balloons are touching eachother so if you want to stamp and cut out the image for some added dimension, you don't have to cut out each one individually.

The ballons were stamped with VersaFine Ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, colored with Copic Markers, and then cut out.  The background was inked with Broken China, Evergreen Bough, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink then flicked with water.  Once dry, I stamped the balloon image onto the background again.  The balloons which were already colored and cut out, were adhered over the background image using pop dots.  The background was pierced using the Tim Holtz Ruler.

See ya tomorrow! HUGS!

wow I keep going back and staring at that! It's so lovely! I really does look like they're floating off the card--just gorgeous Jill!

Brilliant with the dimension of the balloons & the way they extend over the edge of the background panel. The flicked water background is so effective for it really gives a cloudy look to the sky.
