Today I'm sharing with you a creation inspired by the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge 13-26 -Anything Goes!
As a little girl, I LOVED hot air balloons. I had stationary, book covers, folders... you name, I had it in hot air balloon print.
For this challenge, a Peachy Keen Stamps is required. I used the sentiment, Relax and Enjoy, from the PK-206 stamp set. It think it's perfect! I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on white cardstock. Then I enhanced it with Antique Linen Distress ink to better fit the feel I wanted.
I added some Diamond Stickles to the balloon. It wouldn't have been complete without Stickles.
The hot air balloon is from the Silhoutte Online Store, and it included two clouds. I cut those out with a scrap piece of grey cardstock. Then used them as templates with Stormy Sky distress ink for the background. I like the softer, relaxing feel that the Storym Sky gives you compared to a more traditional blue, such as Broken China or Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
I used 3 Girl Jam ribbon in Hot Chocolate to marry the background and sentiment pieces.
The hot air balloon is on some foam squares to bring it up off the background. I think it gives it more of a 'floating in the air' feel. Don't you?
