Papertrey May Blog Hop....



Wow!! Can you believe that it is time for May's bloghop already? Where is this year going?

I will keep this really simple because I know you want to get to everyone's blog to see what they have done. I know I want to see all of your creations.

I have been trying to think of something different that what I have seen done before. I am not that creative but I came up with a frame idea. I cut my frame out of Dk Chocolate Felt and used my Mega Curved rectangles to cut it out. Then I stamped Woodgrain stamp set in True Black to give it some texture look. I cut and stamped three of the Up,Up and Away Balloons and used my copics to color them. I just played around with different colors. Some of them I used two different colors together to make a different shade. I popped them up with dimensionals to make them look like they were floating. I used the cloud dies and distressed the edges with Spring Rain ink. The background is Spring Rain CS and I used the new linen impression plate for some testure there. The sentiment is also from Up, Up and Away. The buttons are from the Spring Moss Vintage buttons.

Looking forward to seeing all of your creations!!!

Thank you for stopping by and having a look!
