I cut the balloon using a snippet of dark blue card and backed the envelope part of the balloon with a lighter blue with some Stormy Sky ink over it, and I also added a little Mowed Lawn to try and harmonise the colours with the background.
I assembled the card backing the main panel with another snippet of dark blue card and die cut a sentiment from another snippet of the dark blue, which I backed with the Stick It adhesive.
After finishing the card I did wonder if the balloon looked a bit too dark for the quite light coloured background, but decided to use it as I know sometimes I am rather picky and overly fussy...lol. Quite often the finished result in reality doesn't match up to the picture in my head but using inks for colouring is not an exact science and I suppose the beauty of this method of colouring is that every piece of work is different.
Thank you for visiting today, and thank you for all the interest you show in my blog which is greatly appreciated.
See you soon.
