And here's my take on it.. I stuck pretty much with Korin's Awesome sketch.. Didn't change a thing, unless you count my images rising out of their two little square panels.. 8-)
Well I stamped my Fun Hot air Balloons from Verve's Up, up and Away set onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black. I did a little paper piecing using some Darling dp's from the Stella & Rose "Mabel" collection from MME that I also used for my two long rectangular BG panels too, and added a bit of coloring and shading with my trusty Copics and a touch of Antique Linen Distress Ink. I matted everything up with the help of my Classic Squares and Scalloped Squares Nesties and some kraft CS from my stash. I created my Big fluffy clouds BG using a fab cloud template from Bev Rochester ( that my Wonderful SRU team mate Marilyn Scheller shared with me), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a small stenciling brush... And to finish it all up, I popped up my Darling images with some dimensionals, stamped my Lil' Inkers Sentiment using Memento Rich Cocoa onto my lower image panel and added a bit of yummy aqua bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds... Pretty easy peasy, huh? 8-)..
