Vintage blue skies

Happy Sunday, and welcome to lawn fawn inspiration week!  I'm so excited to be able to share the new sets - they are all so adorable!

Today, we're highlighting "blue skies," a hot air balloon set with lawn fawn flair:

vintage blue skies

I stamped the adorable hot air balloon, colored it in with copics and then stamped the chevron pattern from "interlocking backdrops" over-top for some subtle pattern.  A flying banner was easy to create: I stamped the full banner, and just drew in a few lines to close it off and make it look like the balloon was carrying it across the *pink* sky.

The clouds are subtle, but so cute!  (I love that they are flat-bottomed, don't you?) I stamped them in a pink ink, and then swiped some copic shading into them.

I hope you like today's card!  See you tomorrow for more lawn fawn inspiration ♥
