To start I blended a sunset scene using distress oxide inks in Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire. I splattered the panel with water and blotted off the excess to create stars in the distance. Next I stamped the balloon from Up, Up, and Away with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored it with copic markers and die-cut it with the coordinating dies. I also stamped a sentiment from Blown Away with versafine and die-cut it with the wavy banner die.
Next I die-cut the trees and mountains from the Mountain Z-Fold die set with dark grey and black cardstock. I added a little shading to the mountains with copic markers to give them a little dimension. Next I applied crystal glaze to the tops of the mountains and sprinkled them with puffy embossing powder to create snow on the mountaintops. Next I die-cut clouds from white cardstock and vellum and adhered them to the sunset panel. I applied a little crystal glaze to the clouds and sprinkled them with a mix of prisma and chunky glitter. Then I adhered the trees, mountains, balloon, and sentiment. Finally I added a thick layer of spectrum noir clear sparkle to the balloon to finish the card!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and until next time, happy crafting!!
