Life is Like a Balloon

I have made something other than a card today using some wonderful images from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I LOVE this stamp set! It's called Life is Like a Balloon and I thought it would work beautifully in my art journal.

I started off by making the background. I used some acrylic paints and a cloud stencil for the sky and some distress oxide inks for the ground with a fern stencil. I also used some black ink through a text stencil and darkened the edges of the pages with it too.

I then brushed gesso over the top to soften the look and with markers drew a border to frame everything.

I used copics to colour the images and fussy cut them out and I cut the sentiment into strips and drew a border around these also.  I left the "balloon" word out of the sentiment and instead used a die to cut this out for greater impact.  I also added some black ink splatters and some highlights with white pen.

This is a gorgeous stamp and I love the sentiment too!  I will definitely make cards with these two sometime soon.
