Skipping Stones Tuesday

Its time for a new inspiration challenge at Skipping Stones Design and this week its a color combo and/or trigger photo.  You have all week to enter and one lucky winner will win an SSD stamp set of their choice!  SO go get stamping!

When I spotted the map I thought of this What's Up paper from Basic Grey that just also happened to have balloons, so guess what stamp set got pulled out?  Uplifting!   I started by spraying all my papers with Frost and Copper Sheer Shimmer Spritzs from Tsukineko.  All edges were then inked with Smokey Gray Versafine (Tsukineko).  


I then heat embossed my 3 balloons (and the sentiment) with Sepia Versafine and clear EP.  I cut the balloons all out and popped them up with Crafty Foam tape.

Here's a closer shot at the sentiment (one of many from the Uplifting set)
