Up Up and Away

The theme this month at Naughty or Nice is 'on the move', and there's an optional colour theme too.  If you'd like to play along link your card over at the blog.

my card was for a friend of my Mum who's heading off on her holidays, but I think I'll keep this one in mind next time I need a 'new job' card.
My balloon is from an oldie set (I think Creative Inspirations) - coloured with watercolour pencils and then I went over the pink with my sparkle pen.  Clear gloss and glitter over the blue section, and then popped up on dimensionals.

The 'up' was part of a sentiment in the set, so I masked off the unwanted bits and then added the 'away' from my MFT alpha set.  Background is watercoloured through a stencil.

Brilliant take on the theme Lynne love the image and sentiment also the delicate colour you have used for the sky it really does give a super illusion of being lost in the clouds

I really love hot air balloons, and yours is fabulous! I went for a ride in one once. It was a birthday gift. I loved being so high above the ground, floating along. The landing was a bit exciting (I don't think they're ever perfectly smooth), but we did land safe and secure.
