Fly Away Friends

Today I’m sharing a card using an older set from Pretty Pink Posh called Fly Away Friends. This fabulous stamp set and coordinating dies are on sale until June 24 2018, so it’s a great time to treat yourself.

I really love the hot air balloons in this set. It comes with two critters, perfectly sized to fit in the larger balloon or the plane. I decided not to add any critters on my card today.

I began by creating a panel on distress oxide ink directly on the card base, to act as my sky in the scene. I flicked it with water for lots of detail.

Next, I cut two panels of white card with a scallop border. I stamped a sentiment on one piece, then adhered both to the card base with self adhesive foam sheet.

I stamped some images from the Fly Away Friends stamp set, colouring them with copics and using the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I added the balloons on the card, using foam tape for any areas sitting on the blue inked background. I adhered the smaller balloon directly to the background, to give the card more depth.

I added some Pearl White jewels and I’ll finish the sentiment by stamping one of the other greetings inside the card.
