CIC21 Celestial Moon
Oh My Stars!!! - Aren't those cupcakes heavenly. Don't you just love the bright, cheery colors, the puffy white clouds with their silver linings and the wonderful balloons floating through the air.
Since I don't own a single Hot Air Balloon image I decided to take a bit of different route with the inspiration photo. I decided to use a moon image as it's a celestial image and I felt it related to the them of the Air Balloons, just on a different level. I went with the bright colors of the stars and balloons as well.
The moon image (SU-Sun,Moon and Stars - retired)was colored with Prisma Color pencils and blended with gamsol. I masked the image and sponged on Ballet Blue ink. Then I highlighted the swirls with a Silve Spica Glitter pen and added a punched star (Folk Star) in Brushed Silver cs.
My card base is Ballet Blue layered with Whisper White, Summer Sun embossed with my new Star Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I added a piece of SU Summer Picnic-retired DP and a border of Brushed Silver punch with my Wavy Border (EK Success) punch.
The sentiment was computer generated and then punched with Labels Nestabilitie Dies and tied with French Blue (SU retired) grosgrain ribbon. I mounted the image with foam tape.
I hope you enjoy my take on the inspiration photo and will want to try it out for yourself. Just vivit Hope's Blog and leave a link to your card there.
