Fluffy clouds

I'm kind of embarrassed how long these stamps have been in my possession but uninked.  They come from two different sets -- one is from SU, and I'm guessing the other is a Studio G -- I picked up at the semi-annual craft consignment sales at least two sales ago.  I combined them into this cheerful little scene where I just grabbed any colors of ink that appealed to me. The hot air balloon is colored with pencils.

I love that fluffy cloud stamp (it's part of the SU set) so I cut a few out and popped them up to be floating outside the circle.
The sketch is the current one at Sketch Saturday, and the sentiment on the tag qualifies this for the Cuttlebug Mania challenge as well.
The circles were cut with Nesties, and I added the piercing around the dark blue layer by hand.

Let's enter some challenges:
Sketch Saturday #354 -- sketch
Cuttlebug Mania -- tag it
Clear it Out Challenge -- two or more things you were hoarding (how about uninked stamps, plus the ribbon, floss and tag)
Word Art Wednesday #177 -- anything goes
Loves Rubberstamps -- your favorite embellishments (Ribbon, tags and piercing all mine)
CHCN patterned paper challenge -- use patterned paper.


  1. This scene is precious! You really put it together well and combined stamps from different companies well. That designer paper is perfect with your swirly clouds. I should check out that clear it out challenge.... no, I don't have time. Too bad, I have LOTS to clear out.

  2. Hi Sandy! I saw this pop up on my dashboard and loved it at first sight! Wonderful stamping and such a gorgeous design too.
