Sometimes, when you see a stamp, you know exactly what your going to do with it. That's how I felt when I saw this weeks SOTW - Heart Air Balloon 9114-I. I have seen several places online where people are inking a background to look like clouds. I have been hoping to try this technique and this lovely hot air balloon was my opportunity to do that.
Then, about a week ago, my husband came into the house with a stack of old maps from one of our vehicles. He said I should toss (recycle) whatever I don't want. I knew exactly how I was going to be using those maps. I love when things come together like that *smiles*. What could possibly make this better??? - how about the fact that since this image is the featured SOTW, it is 50% off, this week only.
Here's my card using the SOTW - Heart Air Balloon - 9114-I, the inked background that looks like clouds, AND my husbands map in 3-D to create the balloon. Love it!!!
Here's a close up. This verse is also a RI image called Beautiful Days 9206-H.
On the old maps, I stamped the balloon image 5 or 6 times. I cut out each image just inside the ink line - creating just a heart shape. I then folded each heart shape straight down the center, then glued these pieces, wrong sides together - creating a 3-D piece. I then glued my 3-D balloon onto an image I had stamped on my background. A really simple way to create an interested affect.
