Blowing Wishes Your Way JAI#252

It was so much fun colouring the bird (see it here) from Time To Celebrate, I decided to continue another stamp from that hostess set, the hot air balloon using the sketch at Just Add Ink.

The Stampin' Write markers were what I wanted, especially because the fine tip on these is VERY precise. Stazon Black ink is needed for stamping when you use markers. I pulled out an Aquapainter when I'd finished to soften the plain sections of yellow (So Saffron) and aqua (Coastal Cabana).

I felt that some clouds were needed too, so out with a sponge dauber and a mask made from a scallop circle. I'm so glad I hung onto the stamp set with the sentiment, 'blowing wishes your way.' Perfect with this image.

I think the next stamp from that set I might use is the big cake.


  1. Love your choice of scene, Rachel. It's perfect for the sketch. Great colouring & a very sweet card. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week. Di :-)

  2. The sponged clouds, and primary colours, look awesome on your card Rachel. I love how you used the balloon as the circle element of the sketch. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Ad Ink this week!

  3. I love the way you used the angle to make it feel like your balloon is flying away Rachel - its delightful! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. Gorgeous card Rachel! Love the hot air balloon stamp :)

  5. Beautiful colouring and I love the added touch of the clouds! I think the angle of the sketch helps it look like it's floating away :)
