Rainbow balloons!!

Wow - it's been a while since I was able to participate in any challenges!  TOO LONG!!   Very happy to break out a new stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn today and get colouring for Lawnscaping's latest challenge.  I really liked Laurel Beard's colouring of the balloons in rainbow colours, so I decided to try it, but I used Copics, not Inktense pencils. I also wanted to use a banner for this week's CASual Fridays Challenge, Banners and Flags.

I decided to use Memory Box Puffy Cloud dies instead of the ones in the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies die set (which have flat bottoms - which is very cute, but I wanted fluffy bottomed clouds - I don't know why!!) I cut the clouds from Inkadinkado mask paper, and masked around the square panel as well, then used an ink-blending tool to add Distress Ink in Broken China and Cut Glass for the sky.

I hope you have a lovely day - thanks for visiting!

    1. Hi, Michelle - yes, I changed the light globes in the room - they were incandescent (with a definite yellowish tinge) to fluorescent, energy saving globes - much more like daylight!
