Up, up and away...



I think balloon girl has too many balloons. She is floating up into the wild blue yonder. This new stamp from A Muse comes with just 3 balloons but when I decided she would look good floating up in the sky, I stamped lots more. I had to bring out my stamp-a-ma-jig for this card. Usually I don't use it but this was getting out of hand and I didn't want to waste paper. I also cut out some of the balloons to give this card more dimension. I will add a photo so you can see this effect more clearly. I really wanted to put some crystal effects on the balloons but I was worried that it would weigh Mandy down!!! Okay, now go check out the other A Muse instructor's blogs and see what else is new in Mandy's world.

Look how clever you are! :) Reminds me of the Myth Busters episode where they lifted a little girl off the ground with balloons.

I love all the balloons and how you gave it added dimension. It really looks like she is being taken away in the clouds! Nice job!
