Up in the Air

Hi Everyone, new challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting this week it is U- Up in the air, and the first thing that came to mind was the hot air balloons set I had from Stampin up. I have used it to create the balloons, and the birds in the sky and the sentiment. The clouds were created using a sponge dauber and scalloped circle. The trees are a die cut.
Thanks for looking Cindy 

Thank you

This week at the Pause Dream Enjoy challenge we have an anything goes challenge. so I was just playing around and made this card I used old olive ink along with stamp sets called Serene Silhouettes and Peaceful Petals.
I started with a white card base, and decided to add a moon, so punched out a circle with a post it not and taped it down, I then started sponging off the paper onto the paper with the Old Olive ink. I got it where I had a nice coverage and was happy with it took off the mask and got my moon, in behind the plants I added some hills again by sponging over a piece of paper that I tore and moved here and there to get the hills I wanted, I then added the flowers from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set also stamped in old Olive. I added a piece of 3/8 in taffeta ribbon in old olive and stamped the greeting and then punched out it is on a base of Mossy Meadow and so is the scene.
Thanks for looking.
