The Sky's the Limit

Hey everyone, it is Deanna here again back with another  Die R Us post.  Here is what I have for you today.

For this card I started with white card stock that I cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I cut a piece of watercolor paper at 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  Using some light blue watercolor paint, I painted the entire piece of paper so it looked like the sky.

Next using Lawn Fawn Blue Skies stamps and matching dies I stamped my balloons and clouds onto watercolor paper.  I colored the images with some watercolor pencils.  Once I finished coloring the images I die cut them out.

Once I had the images cut out I stamped my sentiment with some dark blue ink onto the sky blue watercolor paper.  I then arranged the clouds and my balloons onto the paper and adhered them down.  Finally I adhered the sky watercolor paper to the entire front of my card.

I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  Be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to do some shopping while you are here. And don't forget to like us on our Facebook page.  You don't want to miss out on anything that is happening at Dies R Us.
