Up, Up and Away...

 Welcome to my blog today, Shopping Our Stash has a brand new challenge!! It's the Rainbow Connection. We want to see rainbows or rainbow colours on your project. When I planned my card it seemed rather easy to do but as I was working on it I knew it was going to be way too involved as I wanted to paper piece, please note....there was no paper piecing involved in the making of this card.

As the rainbow took up a fair amount of space and I wanted a dark layer I cut the base 4 inches by 8.50 inches. The card still fits in a #10 or business envelope. I started to make the background after watching a video, mine really didn't look like the video so I just blended two shades of DI ink over it and I really like the results, you can still sort of see the clouds but you can't. I used white foam core to cut the hot air balloons, I have had the die for a couple of years, and the clouds as well, The rainbow is fairly new but never been used before, it takes practice to line them up properly too. Hello was cut three times and glued together to give it dimension, which shows much better IRL.

Thanks for stopping by today and I'm looking forward to seeing your "rainbow connection" cards. Head over to the Main Blog and see the awesome rainbow themed cards the rest of the design team have made.

Beautiful! I don't know what the background was supposed to be like, but this is a great hot air balloon sky.
