Sketch Saturday - Up, Up and Away!!

Saturday 21 July 2012

Happy Saturday morning to everyone! I hope the weekend holds lots of nice things in store for you.

I'm teaching an Advanced Copic class today which should be good fun. I've been working hard on my own colouring skills recently so hopefully I will be able to pass on some wisdom to some of my ladies!

Anyway, on to this week's Sketch Saturday challenge. As per usual, we have another fabulous sketch for you today:

and here is my take on it for the Design Team:

I used the Up, Up and Away stamp set by Stampin' Up which is fast becoming my favourite stamp set and obviously made a little scene from the balloons with some little birdies too. I love how the top balloon is flying off the card!

and my sentiment wouldn't fit in a strip so I cut it out with a circle punch and made a feature of it that way.  I've also added 'Grandad' down the bottom as, it was for my Grandad...

This week's challenge is sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and there is a prize on offer so make sure you join in!

I hope you like it and thanks so much for looking!

  3. This is lovely, Niki, and one of my fave colour combos too. There is something very appealing about hot air balloons. And I love your little stitched and ruched twin ribbons. Hugs, Lesley
