Less is More - Week 107 - Up in the Air

Just managed to make another quick card for the Less is More Up in the Air challenge.

I've used my Penny Black Hedgehog Kisses stamp with Memento Ink Tuxedo Black and stamped on white card.  I wanted them to appear to be "floating" so thought I'd use my Memory Box Marshmallow Cloud die but because it's a solid die you can't do the normal thing of cutting the area that's going to be outside the die cut shape.  Instead I used the larger of the two dies and placed it over the image and pencilled around it.  I then fussy cut all the way round.  Image coloured in Letraset Flexmarkers and I've added some atyou Spica clear glitter to the balloons and cheeks (although not sure it came out on the photo).  I took a scallop edged card blank and popped up a small cloud in the right hand corner (I edged the bottoms of the clouds in light grey) and then doubled the depth of the foam on the main image to add more dimension.  The sentiment is from another Penny Black set called ".... in the air".

Thanks for dropping by - be sure to visit tomorrow for the brand new Addicted to CAS challenge.
