The temperature in Vegas today is about 104 degrees Fahrenheit, so a cool breeze would be nice. That thought brings us to my project, which, you could say, features a cool breeze.
Blowing Wind Corner is a large corner stamp of clouds with a face blowing a gust of wind. Acrobat on Rope features a girl hanging on to a piece of rope. I stamped both stamps with Memento ink and then colored them with Copic markers.
I took a fine tipped black marker and drew lines coming from the frayed end of the rope to make it look like the strings coming from a bunch of balloons. By doing this, I was able to use this stamp for something completely different than what it depicts.
Then I punched some balloons out of different colored papers and covered them with Clear 3D Crystal Lacquer. I glued them down in layers, putting the balloons in the front of the bunch on pop dots to add dimension.
After that, I decided to use a foam applicator sponge to put down some Broken China distress ink to make the sky look more realistic. I also added a little bit of Milled Lavender distress ink to the cloud stamp to highlight some of the areas that I had colored with the Copic markers.
I didn’t feel this card needed a sentiment, but you could easily add one to match your occasion if you wanted to.
