OCL challenge - Happy Birthday

There is still time to play in this past week’s Our Craft Lounge challenge over at The Lounge. The challenge is What Floats your Boat and ends tonight at 11:59 tonight.


I decided to go with something that floats in the air and used Love is in the Air. I tried something a little different on my hot air balloon, covering some areas with crystal effects, letting it dry and then sponging on color. The areas I had added the crystal effects to resisted the color and kept the color of the cardstock which was white. I then cut out the hot air balloon completely and attached it using zapdots. The clouds were stamped on some fuzzy paper and cut out. Used some May Arts ribbon to finish off the card.


Play along with us this week and be entered to WIN a $20 gift certificate from  Our Craft Lounge
