Balloons Away

Its a Blog Hop today for the Stampendous and STEADTLER collaboration!  I hope you've enjoyed all the projects that we created for you all week.  A huge thanks to STAEDTLER for sending me a box of  fun goodies to play with :)

Today I played with the Fimo clay.  Mine was White microwaveable but it comes in all types and colors.  There have been some fabby clay projects at Kelli's blog all week and mine falls way short in comparison, but it was my first time working with this medium!



I rolled out my white clay into a thin rectangular shape and then stamped Hot Air Trio with Versafine ink onto it (after I misted it with water so my stamp wouldn't stick.  I then cut around the edges carefully and left it to dry.  Finally, I sanded my edges and then colored it with STAEDTLER aquarelle watercolor pencils.
