Love Is In the Air

Hello Everyone!
Today I've created a love themed card using the new Cloud Background stamp and the Hot Air Balloon Stamp Of The Month from Brutus Monroe! I thought they went so well together! 

I first inked up the new Cloud background stamp with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and sprinkled Brutus Monroe Alabaster embossing powder all over the inked area and then heat set it. I used Ranger distress inks for an ink resist technique in two shades of light blues. 

Next, I placed the Hot Air Balloon stamp with the hearts that come with the stamp set into my Misti tool and put my cardstock in place. I inked the balloon and the hearts with Brutus Monroe Rouge Surface Ink and stamped my card. I left the stamp in place in my Misti, by it being in the same place, I then inked the rope and the basket in Brutus Monroe Machiatto Surface Ink so they would be brown and stamped my card again, I now have two colors on my hot air balloon.

I then trimmed my cloud background down to 5.5 inches and placed it on a piece of red cardstock slightly larger and adhered those to a 6 x 6 top folding card base. I popped my hot air balloon up on foam adhesive and glued my hearts down with Brutus Monroe Craft glue.

To finish my card I added Acrylic Bubbles and glossy accents around my card!

I hope you enjoyed!
