Up, up and away

Hi everyone. Hope your week is going well.  I decided to play along in this weeks Stamping Bella challenge.  Theme is 'Happy Birthday'. 

I pulled out one of my newest images that was waiting patiently to be inked.  Here we have Uptown Bentley gets blown away.

I stamped Bentley on white cougar paper using black memento and coloured her using copics. Once she was coloured I cut her out using spellbinders rectangle die, using a smaller die so I could have the balloons reaching outside the die cut.  Since she was floating off I needed to place some clouds to ground her.  I used the paper towel and ink technique - tear a piece of paper towel, place onto your card and sponge ink using the paper towel as your stencil, continue to move the paper towel to form clouds - I really love this technique.

Once the card was done I added some sequins and glitter.

This is sooooo pretty, Pauline, and those clouds are the softest, fluffiest, most realistic looking ever! I can't remember the last time I made clouds, but I'm going to use this technique the next time I do. Love the purple and I especially love the balloon color combo. Glitter, too! Lots of fabulous glitter! What a fun birthday card!
