Up, up and away !

Good morning to you - thanks for popping in x

Well today is time for a new challenge over at papercrafting journey and this week the challenge theme is "Up in the air".

We are lucky enough to have another fantastic sponsor this week and that is MyGrafico.

The DT were treated to a fabulous set of images from Sanqunetti designs called up and away - perfect for our challenge !

When I think of hot air balloons I think of those aged prints that you see on the walls of pubs and hotels and wanted to recreate that with my card.

I paper peiced the actual balloon with a freebie digi paper (from canon I think) and coloured the basket with promarkers.

My background paper is from pink petticoat and I "aged it" by distressing with ink. The sentiment, also in the up & away kit, was printed and diecut with my nesties and I created the soft cloud effect by cutting a piece of scrap card into a rough cloud shape and using it as a mask. And added the little birds with a biro !
I also aged the fabric button and added a crystal brad to the ribbon criss cross.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Mojo Monday - Another fabulous sketch
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Up in the air
Jac-Inks Papercraft Challenges - Masking
Crafty Cardmakers - Fabric
I Did It Creations Challenge - Masking technique
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Paper piecing
Stamping Vacation - Nestabillities

Thanks for looking - I hope you will join in with us at papercrafting journey - don't forget you've got 2 weeks to get a project completed x
