Hot air transportation

Hi everyone,


Time really flies, where did it go?! Well, it's Monday again and it's time for a brand new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Transportation is the theme of this week. What is your favorite ride?



I would love to go on hot air balloon ride someday! Although I'm a little afraid of heights. But still, I think it's really cool to go to great heights with the wind in your hair and a stunning view. Who knows, maybe it will happen someday.



When I see this hot air balloon, I immediately think of steampunk. I can't help it.  I thought it would be a fun idea to give this card a little steampunk feel to it. But with some color in it. The background is made with Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves. Such cool rich deep colors! Since the theme of the card is steampunk, I stamped the edges with Cogs.



The hot air balloon is colored with Dylusions Vibrant Turquiose, Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape and Melted Chocolate. To give it some extra sparkle I applied some Heirloom Perfect Pearls Mist with a brush over it.



This sentiment is so cool and I wanted this to shine. So I stamped it with Versamark ink and applied  Heirloom Perfect Pearls powder with a brush. To secure the powder, I used hairspray. Works perfectly!
