Up in the Air


Saturday is upon us once again and of course that means the Less is More challenge which, this week, is 'Up in the Air'. My first thought was the bunny in a balloon from the set Everybunny so, as Easter is not too far away, that is what I used for my entry.
I started by stamping the trees from Lovely as a Tree at the bottom of a piece of Whisper White, stamped in Old Olive and then stamped again without re-inking. The balloon image was stamped in Staz-on and then, after placing a post-it note mask over the top of the image, the panel was sponged with a little Certainly Celery under the trees and Bashful Blue for the sky. The mask was removed and the image coloured with marker pens. My poor Easter Bunny looks like he may be suffering from ear problems and that's because I picked up the wrong pink marker so it was a bit brighter than I intended!!!
The panel was matted onto Daffodil Delight and then onto a white card blank. Originally I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with one of the Bitty Banners Framelits to fly from the strings of the balloon but then took it off because I preferred it without. What do you think? I might stamp a sentiment directly onto the card or leave the front as it is and put the sentiment inside - 
decisions, decisions :0)
