Happy Bank Holiday. I hope you are having a fine bank holiday weekend for those of you who get a Bank Holiday. Yesterday we celebrated my Mother-in-Law's 90th birthday. We had a lovely time altogether and the weather played its part and was just right. Today I am hoping to go back to the Hampshire Open Studios at Abshot Barn to collect the Batik we bought last weekend I am quite excited about getting it home.
I was making a card for a challenge blog and I created this background in the end I decided it wasn't right for the image I was using. It was too good to waste so I used it to make this card. I made the background by masking off areas so I could control where the Pixie Powders and Brushos went. The clouds I cut with a die and laid them over the paper. I spritzed a couple of times with the clouds in place and once more with them removed. I didn't want a definite line on the clouds.
The balloon was cut with a Spellbinders die set called Up and Away Hot Air Balloon.
This is a Creative Expressions die.
When we set off home yesterday I said "this is a hot air balloon day" it was lovely claim sunny day. Can you imagine my delight when we actually saw one on the journey. As I was in the car the picture isn't that good.
This is another card for my stash for those times when my husband comes home saying he needs a card for someone at work by tomorrow. It has happened quite often.
Enjoy the rest of the day.
