Up in the Air

Hi and welcome!  I've been trying to spend a couple of hours in my craft room each day while I'm off work and this is today's effort:

I made this using the sketch at MFT Stamps.  The ink-blended panel was created by blending various distress inks onto a sheet of Bristol Smooth.  I spritzed some water on the panel and set it aside to dry.  The die-cut grid cover-up was adhered with thin strips of foam tape.  I stamped, colored and die-cut the balloon, clouds and dog and white embossed the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock.

I arranged all the elements onto the card front then used my tape runner to attach it to a white top-folding card base before adding some Crystal Glaze to the dog's nose and black glaze pen to his eyes.

Thanks for visiting.

I'm also linking this up to the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
