What's Up Dog? | Hot Air Balloon

What's Up Dog? | Hot Air Balloon

Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday!
Today I'm sharing a card from the Hot Air Balloon stamp set. I just couldn't resist the sentiment What's Up Dog? and had to use it along with the cute dog and hippo. 


I started my card by stamping the images on Neenah 80# cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. After coloring I cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut using the direct cut feature which cut the images out on the black line. Then I traced around my images with a black marker to give it a finished look. 

Next I used some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock to create my sky background. I used Brutus Monroe surface inks and began with Rock Candy, then Apricot, and Cabbage. I went over the colors a couple of times to blend the colors nicely together. 


Next I trimmed down my background with a rectangle die and adhered it to my card base. I also used a left over frame from a previous project and adhered that around my background using Brutus Monroe craft glue.

I popped my dog and hippo up on foam dimensionals and glued the rest of my images and sentiment flat to my card. 

 To finish my card I added Wink of Stella, Stickles, and Ballerina Bottle Cap sequins around my card.

That's my card for today, I love the way this came out and I hope you did too!

Ink blending with Brutus Monroe Surface Inks is easy, pretty, and permanent! Give it a try!
