Grand Voyage Balloon
by Melissa Rusk

Welcome back to another day in our Blog Blitz! This Spring release is filled with so much good stuff, it was hard to pick what to share today. As a kid I loved the yearly hot air balloon festival our town had. When I saw the Grand Voyage Balloon I knew that I had to make some cards!


For the background, I did a simple wash of blue watercolor to create the sky. To make the puffy clouds, I took white embossing paste on my pallet knife and formed it in different shapes. They add so much dimension to the sky, so fun.


I die cut the Grand Voyage Balloon and the Zig Zag Stripes in the Memory Box Distressed Dots paper in the colors bubblegum, mango and pool. Finally, I cut the Pennant Garland in white and used my clear Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle.

Now is your chance to win! Leave a comment on the post by Sunday, April 17th at 11:59 pm EST to win the Grand Voyage Balloon die. Winners will be announced on the Outside the Box blog on Monday, April 18th! Good luck and have a fabulous day!
