I stamped the balloon in Vivid Inky Blue and pieced it with October Afternoon "Report Card" DP. Then I die cut the three clouds with the Large Big Scalloped Oval Nestabilities dies and sponged them with a little ink on the bottoms before removing the dies. Don't these make great clouds?? I got these dies recently and haven't used them near enough, now I'm just gonna call them my "cloud dies"! When you do all different sizes for one project, you can die cut them all in one pass, which is great! The Cosmo Cricket "Boyfriend" DP with the paper airplanes as sky makes it more whimsical, but this card is bling-free again, because it's for my other son heading back to school! cardstock layer and base is Pure Luxury Red Hot and Creme de Menthe.
TIP: Be sure to use pop dots here for dimension, it really creates the illusion of the clouds drifting by and the balloon hovering...
