Up, Up and Away

This week's Inspiration Challenge was hot air balloons.  If you look at the images below, you'll see which one I chose.  I had seen the bargello technique on Splitcoaststampers and decided that this was the perfect excuse to give it a try.  You can find the technique tutorial here.  Originally I was just going to use plain coloured card stock but at the last second went looking through my scrap pile for rainbow colours.  I'm so glad I did.  This is such a cheery card in the middle of our grey, winter days.   It's also helping me use up some of my DP scraps which are threatening to take over the world, or at least my dining room!  The sentiment is a personal favourite from MFP's Hydrangea set.


  1. You chose the prettiest of the colors to make this little lovely card , Good job ...Lis

  2. Christine, your card is so pretty and I definitely can tell which picture you drew the inspiration from. Thanks, so much for being on the inspiration challenge design team.
