This is the first of my cards using the new Filigraphy Balloon stamps. I've always enjoyed using the old balloon stamps so I was really excited to see these new ones.
I think that they look really striking in black and white so that was the basis for this card. I stamped out the main balloon and then masked it off to create the background. I used the new Pine Forest Mask to create the trees, getting them paler by applying less ink each time I moved it up. I then used my cloud mask to create those.
The smaller balloons and "thank you" are stamped in Black Archival Ink.
My original idea for finishing this off was to give it a Zentangled border using the same patterns from the balloon. Unfortunately I am probably the only person in the world who can't do it and it looked a right mess. The look on Hubby's face when I showed him confirmed my suspicions and version one was binned. Luckily I remembered that I had some fab black and white Kanban card so I used that instead. I think it sets it off really well.
