Up, Up and Away

A card for Papertake Weekly which this week has a sketch to follow.

I've used my 'Up, Up and Away' background design for Spiral Whisper and stamped with versafine black onyx twice. The image is coloured with Ranger distress inks, matted on white card and mounted on dimension tape. I stamped the image again for two of the balloons which I coloured, cut out and mounted on tape over the complete image.

The image panel is layered over the background of pink petticoat papers in line with the sketch. To finish I added a swirly clip decorated with ribbons. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
