Lift Up Balloon and Flowers

Hello everyone!

It's Berina here today with 2 cards using the beautiful Lift Up Balloon stamp set. This set is so versatile in that it can be used as a hot air balloon and flowers can be used by themselves. I will be showing both ways today.


Card 1:




Here's how I made this card:

Stamp the flowers and the lower part of the hot air balloon with the Tubby Craft Black ink. 

Color the image with markers. I used Copics - RV14, RV13, RV21, RV10, V09, V17, V15, V12, YR68, Y38, YR31, E59, E57 and E53.

Stamp the sentiment with the Tubby Craft Black ink.

Adhere the panel on to a top folding A2 card base.

The Tubby Craft inks works well with Copic markers. As you see, there is no smudging. Here's another pic of this card.



Card 2:

For the second card, I decided to try watercoloring on gold embossing.




Here's how I made this card:


  • Gold emboss the flower image multiple times, along the left and the right edge of the watercolor panel. Gold emboss the sentiment from Fancy Sentiments.
  • Watercolor the image with Tubby Craft inks. I used the Imperial Red and Tangy Orange for the flowers, Hot Pink and Light Pink for the butterfly and I mixed Lemon Yellow and Sapphire Blue for the greens. I pressed the ink pad on to acrylic block and used a wet brush to watercolor the image.
  •  I inked the edges of an A2 card base with Tangy Orange ink and adhered the watercolored panel on to it.




These inks are so lovely to watercolor. I love the bright and lovely colors.
