Watercoloring Stamped Images

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Had a really beautiful weekend here and the temps are already in the low 90's! Guess that means another scorcher of a summer!

I am finally getting around to posting my next card for Online Card Classes. Days 5 & 6 were about watercoloring stamped images. I used the Blue Skies stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn on my card.

The hot air balloon was watercolored with Distress inks and cut out with the coordinating die. I cut 3 additional balloons and adhered them all together to make the image dimensional. I watercolored the background a light blue (it looks gray in the photo) and the inlaid die cut clouds in a light gray wash using Yarka watercolors. The sentiment is also from the Blue Skies set and is stamped directly onto the card front. I finished the card by adding clear Wink of Stella to the clouds and to the little stamped heart on the basket.
