#tgifc 125 - Theme Week - Getting around

Welcome, welcome. It's time for a new TGIF Challenge with this week being a fun theme week - how to travel.

Maybe it's by land,
maybe it's by sea,
maybe it's by air - 
This week let some form of transportation be your inspiration!!!


It can be by bike, balloon, wagon, car, plane, horse, whatever your transportation heart desires. 

When scouring through my stamp sets for something transporation related, the only stamp set that I had was Lift Me Up. I haven't used the set for a while and I really enjoyed playing around with this one again and creating with it.

I first started with the water colour wash layer and really wanted the wash to have a cloud like look. I first use Stampin Up!s colour, Soft Sky for the washed background but that was too light so I went over it again with Marina Mist. Once I washed the colour on the Shimmery White Cardstock I spritzed the wash with water using one of the Stampin' Up! Spritzers. This washes out the colour a bit more and gives it a more muted look.


Once the wash background dried, I then sprayed some of the water from the spritzer in my hand and then flicked some of the water over top of the wash. When the droplets dry, they pull some more of the colour out and gives another look to the water colour wash background.


I then added the Gold embossed Hot Air Balloons, some co-ordinating ribbons and trims and the dotted some of the gorgoeus sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.
