Filigraphy Hot Air Balloons and Flower

Hello. I wanted to get this post written yesterday but I had such a busy weekend and I didn't get the chance. Better late than never though.

This is the card I made for Paul's show on Saturday. I didn't really know anything about Monument Valley so I had a look at some pictures to see what it looks like. The sky seemed to be a lovely bright blue in most of the photos so I dug out my brayer and went for it.

First I stamped and masked the balloon, then I added the Monument Vally mask and brushed it in using Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

When that was done I swapped the mask over and brayered in the sky. I used Stonewashed Adirondack and Salty Ocean Distress Ink for this.

I must admit I love the Filigraphy stamps in simple black and white but this one needed colour so I added some with my Spectrum Noir pencils.

I finished it off with some of the Line Sentiments.

I thought I'd add a few of my previous Filigraphy samples too as a couple were shown on Saturday and I know there are always new people who won't have seen them before.

I'd better get up to my craft room as I am a bit behind on my sample making. I know what I want to do for today's card, I'm just not sure how to achieve it. It could be a frustrating day.........

I hope you have a good week.
