For Your Inspiration #42

Welcome back to another challenge at For Your Inspiration.  I loved the photo inspiration this week.  I know I say that nearly every week, but this one is so beautiful.  It reminds me of the many years we lived in Arizona.  Oh how I miss that scenery!

I decided to go totally literal with the balloon and copied the colors.  I used various Copic, Distress and Sharpie markers.  The big, bold sentiment in stamped in Paris Dusk (memento) and the rhinestones were colored with a light orange Copic marker.

Can you see the linen impression on the white panel?  I decided the card needed a bit more texture so I pulled out my Linen / Canvas IP from Papertrey.

I hope you join us for this challenge.  You have until Wednesday, April 3 to link up your creation at the FYI blog.  Please be sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they did with this photo.  I always love the variety of amazing cards the DT turns out.

Have a wonderful Thursday,

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Up, Up and Away, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Paper:   Lemon Tart, White, royal blue scrap (unknown)
Ink:   Dark Chocolate, Paris Dusk (memento)
Other:  Linen impression plate, Up, Up and Away balloon die, Copic markers, Distress Markers, Sharpies, rhinestones
