Hello Fall - My Favorite of All

>> Wednesday, October 4, 2017

I just love this new sentiment - Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall Greeting.  I grew up in Albuquerque and the International Balloon Fiesta was my favorite Fall event - it always signaled the end of Summer to me.  The event starts October 7th, 2017.  I so wish I could go - I still remember all the gorgeous balloons.

I made some balloons I thought would look pretty in the fiesta.  I stamped them with the new Pumpkin Filigree stamp. I stamped the image with Distress Oxides and then I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP (I used my MISTI).  Then I sponged over the balloons with a touch of the ink.  My bg is also made with Distress Oxides splashed with water to get a cloudy look.

I finished it off with an MFT Stitched Rectangle Frame and some foliage (Tim Holtz die).

Hope your week is going well.
