The Up in the Air stamp set from My Favorite Things has more then just these great hot air balloons. There are those fun banners and birds, so I decided to highlight them on this card.
I started on the background, with Distress Inks and a blending tool. I used Abandonded Coral and Fossilized Amber. I added some water drops onto the panel and dabbed them off with a paper towel. I then die cut the word 'smile' with the Word For Friends die set from MFT. The piece of paper that is going behind this word, I blended with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink.
I stamped the banner with the little flags and the two birds. I colored the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Flags: YG41 - BG35
Birds: Y00 - Y02/ R22 - R35
I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug and adhered them to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow (sentiment is from Jump For Joy, by Lawn Fawn) I added the panel onto a white cardbase and rounded off the two bottom corners.
I sometimes love to create clean and simple cards and I love soft pastel colors.
