Love Is in the Air
Happy Tuesday Everyone! Today I've made a love or a Valentine's day card using the new Cloud Background stamp and the Balloon Stamp of the month! I thought they went so well together!
I first inked up the new Cloud Background stamp with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and sprinkled the Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder all over the inked area and then heat set it. I used Ranger distress inks for an ink resist technique over the embossed card in two shades of light blues.
Next I placed the Hot Air Balloon stamp with hearts that come with the stamp into my Misti tool and put my cardstock in place. I inked the balloon and the hearts with Brutus Monroe Rouge Surface Ink and stamped onto my card. I left the stamp in my Misti, by it being in the same place, I then inked the rope and basket with the Brutus Monroe Machiatto Surface ink so they could be brown and then stamped my card again. I now have two colors on my hot air balloon.
I trimmed my cloud background down to 5.5 inches and placed it on a piece of red cardstock slightly larger and adhered those to a 6 x 6 card base. I popped my hot air balloon up on foam adhesive and glued my hearts down flat using Brutus Monroe craft glue.
To finish my card I added acrylic bubbles and glossy accents.
I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks for stopping by!
