The background is quite simple, just an inky glittery sky, and then the balloons made the focal point. The hilly background was cut with a pair of scissors with no particular shape... just a little uppy and downy hillys, that's all.
The details on the balloon just finish it off perfectly, and as you can see from these photos, they cut perfectly if you use the baby wipe technique I mentioned the other day. A little bit of inking just sets off the colours too.
Just look at the details on the basket... aren't they lovely? Even the tiny weights that are hanging off the basket. Just perfect! I really love the look of a textured card with these dies too, especially with the inking. I think it just finishes it off perfectly.
A little close up of the clouds on this one... I've inked with a few different colours to create a harsher sky, then glittered them. A little bit of glitz settles my magpie instinct just perfectly. lol.
And if you don't feel daring enough to go the whole hog with these fab dies, then just try something a little more restrained.....
I hope you like the projects today. If you've been creating with these dies, leave me a note to come over and I'll share your post mine.
Happy Crafting everyone...
