Blogger Challenge: Week 277

This week’s blogger challenge theme is “take flight.” I used a hot air balloon image from the Our Craft Lounge Love in the Air stamp set along with this week’s Mojo Monday sketch, flipped on its side, for my take on the theme.

I colored the balloon image with Copic markers and carefully cut it out, then set it on a blue circle with foam tape. A few felt clouds I found in my die cut pile filled in the space around the balloon for a sky-like look.

The cardfront is covered with a distressed looking heart patterned paper. I added a red panel along the left side of the cardfront, edging it with a strip of little kraft banners along one side. The image panel is set on top, along with a kraft strip stamped with the “let your dreams take flight” sentiment in red ink. I accented the sentiment with a red button tied with twine.
