My Mum's Craft Shop DT - Up In The Air

Morning my lovelies 💜

I'm here with another My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you. I've chosen one of the new stamp releases from My Favorite Thing (MFT). The stamp set is called   'Up In The Air', and it contains lots of very cute animals and some lovely sentiments - I will definitely be using this set again for more projects.

For my CAS card I used Zig Color pens and Brushos in the background (my first time using them). You might need your sunglasses on for this one. Lol...I hope you like it!


A little close up for you

Here's What I Did
First I matted a 5" x 5" card blank with a piece of pattern paper. Next I die cut a piece of watercolour into an oval, and stamped the puppy head onto it. The puppy was stamped again onto the sticky end of a post-it note, and cut out to create a mask. The mask was used to cover the puppy's head and the hot air balloon was stamped over the top (this places the balloon behind the puppy). Once the ink was dry I painted the whole image with a masking fluid and left to dry. The sentiment was stamped beneath the balloon.
Using a couple of different brusho colours I lightly sprinkled them over the oval and spritzed it with water to make the colours move - I added more brusho where required. I took off any excess water using a piece of rolled up kitchen roll, and left it to dry out. The puppy and hot air balloon were coloured using watercolour pens; the yellow stripe on the balloon was pulled out using a glitter pen instead of water, and actual glitter was added to the white stripes.
The completed image was glued to a white die cut oval and attached to the card front using foam tape. To finish off I added a few pearls at the top and bottom of the card.
