The Friday Mashup for this week (FM145) is to create a project with sponging, using their sketch. It is a nice sketch and is perfect to use for larger stamp images.
Beautiful paper from the new Balloon Ride kit provide the perfect background for the hot air balloon. Saddle pigment ink and a Clear Detail Embossing power was used for the beautiful balloon image from the new Give a Lift stamp set. Markers added a bit of color, and the sentiment was embossed using Sorbet pigment ink and Clear Detail Embossing power. Using the embossing powder results in a nice, slightly raised image with a bit of a sheen. In order to soften the overall card and to provide some definition to the edges of the patterned papers, Sorbet ink was sponged around the edges of all the papers.
My favorite part of the card is the hot air balloon on the inside lifting up and away.
All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
