Captivating Balloons Tutorial and Video

Hello and happy Monday to you! Today I have an Up and Away card tutorial, along with a video. I used Copic markers to add shading to the paper-pieced hot air balloons.

Here is the video. Step by step photos are below.

Start by stamping the hot air balloons using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, on pattern paper. I used Bo Bunny's Country Garden pattern paper.

Add some shading to the larger image using Copic marker E02.

Blend into the highlight areas with E00.

Use YR65 on the horizontal bands.

I decided I wanted a bit more contrast, so added W1 along the lines of the hot air balloon.

For the smaller hot air balloon, start with E31.

Then added E51.

Use E35 to color in the basket portion of both images, then cut out.

Cut and emboss Spellbinders™Classic Squares SM #7 die template (with #1 being the smallest), then sponge with Memento Desert Sand, while still in the die template.

Sponge Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

Stamp the sentiment, also from Up and Away, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Cut and embossed Spellbinders Captivating Squares #4 die template. Adhere hot air balloons to square layer, using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Foam Squares. Cut Pure Luxury ivory cardstock to form a 4 3/4 inch by 4 3/4 inch card base. Use Captivating Squares die template to emboss a frame on the card base. Secure layers, then use a corner rounder punch to add a curve to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
