Blue Skies

Happy Sunday, all! Here is a just because card. =)

I wanted to try and color the clouds and hot air balloons with watercolor the other day. The clouds came out fine, but the hot air balloons were disastrous. It's a good thing that I could always go back to my trusty Copics. =)

The hot air balloons and banner from Lawn Fawn's Blue Skies set are stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then die cut using matching dies. The clouds from the same set are color on watercolor paper with watercolor.

The sentiment is from the versatile Sentiment Sampler set by Paper Smooches. I am also linking this up to the Anything Goes challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.

That's all for now. Have a happy day, my friends! =)
