Off they go... Up Up and Away!

Hello and happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend and ready for another fun week!  For this week, I have a special Girlfriend card to share...  I love hot air balloons, I was super excited when I saw the Up and Away  (SKU #Y4231) stamp.  Not only it's a limited edition stamp, plus it's also help the Obediah Fund in Kenya, for more information, please click HERE.


On to the card, I created a background using the Map of Europe (SKU#Y2506), I stamped it twice to cover the whole card stock in archival ink, using Faber Castell gelato (light blue and white) and randomly cover the area, then use the baby wipe to smooth out the colors.


And here is the finished card, I finished coloring the image and added a few small hot air balloons.  Viola!  I hope you like it!
