Good morning, today I would love to share with you a hot air balloon birthday card I made for my mother in law’s birthday last month. for her birthday she wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride so I thought it fitting to make a card to match. I found this card on a google search and I am really sorry I didn’t take note of the designer.
There was a lot of detail in this one, and a lot of brayering. the sky is brayered to give the light to dark effect, but the balloons are sponged from the outside in to also give the light to dark effect. I have used my markers to colour in the trees, then stamped the same image three times without re-inking the stamp.
here is a close up of the balloons, as you can see I have made them 3-D by folding them in half, then gluing them together:
This is another angle of how they look with fully popped out:
Its nearly Friday, doing the happy dance, we have our Auckland extravaganza this weekend.
