Love is in the Air

This balloon stamp has been causing my heart to skip a beat since I saw it before CHA. Isn't it cute? Isn't it fantastic? And the sentiments and frame that go with it, sigh. Stamp love.
Cosmo Cricket is sponsoring our team at ScrapLovers this month, and the pairing seemed perfect! The image was stamped onto a rectangle cut from Nestabilities. The brightness of the Copic coloring didn't work with the papers very well. To tone that down, I sponged layer after layer of light brown chalk ink over the top. Much better. The sentiment was stamped onto a journaling card. The clouds are self-adhesive chipboard pieces from Cosmo's chipboard collection. They also got some inking, as they were too bright.
Hope your week is going well. One week until I leave for Phoenix and the Spellbinders design team retreat! I can hardly stand the excitement!!!!!!
thanks for stopping by!
