Colourful Hot Air Balloons For Scrapbook Boutique April Challenge

The challenge mood board for Scrapbook Boutique had a lot of monochrome images this time...but what caught my eye was the only colourful one on the board which it seems to me like a hot air balloon and that's the one that inspired me to create this card...

Here is the mood board for this month's challenge at Scrapbook Boutique..


I started by stamping one of the hot air balloon images on the die cut front panel using Versafine black ink and then clear heat embossed it...I coloured in the image with my Spectrum Aqua markers and a water brush....I then masked this image and sponged in some Distress Inks  to create the background...I have used the following shades - tumbled glass,salty ocean,mustard seed,squeezed lemonade,twisted citron and mowed lawn...I also used a cloud stencil to create some clouds in the middle of the panel before adhering it to a plain white card base....

On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock, I stamped the larger hot air balloon and clear heat embossed it as well...I then coloured this hot air balloon with Aqua markers as well and once dry I cut it out and adhered it to my card front using some craft foam for a bit of dimension...

I die cut the sentiment and some confetti from a piece of bright orange foil paper and adhered it below the balloons and my colourful card was ready..
