Up, up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful balloooon!
Hi, guys! What a blustery day it's been today! I dug out my woolly winter scarf and hat when I went out this morning!
I was at the Ally Pally on Saturday where I met Mags, one of my lovely Dream Valley teamies, and her mum. It was great to sit down and talk about cards with people who understand!
The image and papers from today's card were all bought on Saturday. The totally adorable teddy is by Lili of the Valley, I used promarkers and paper-pieced her balloon. The basket has been coated with Glossy Accents. The papers are by K and Co, called 'Lion Sleeps'.
I already had the Penny Black sentiment and the Martha Stewart punch. I used Woodware punches for the flowers, which are pearlised white Papermania card coloured with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. The leaves were also made with a Woodware punch, and the brads and gems are from stash.
The sketch is by Friday Sketch Challenges isn't it great? I distressed the strips and stickled round all the edges.
I'm also entering the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge, which is a theme of 'Transport.' I think a balloon must be one of the most romantic ways to travel - if you don't get vertigo!
The Deep Ocean Challenge is to be inspired by a song - mine is 'Up, up and Away in my Beautiful Balloon' by the Fifth Dimension - here's a link to Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5akEgsZSfhg. It's as cheesy as anything, but reminds me of my Youth!
I hope all you lovely people are having a good week! Take care, and thanks for looking!
love Mags B x
