Accessories: Hearts by Lori Whitlock (Cameo stencils); Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Purple Violet; Sakura Pigma Micron Black Pen; White Lustre card from stash
I took the song title "Love is in the Air" - John Paul Young (see the link to U-tube at the bottom of this post) as inspiration for the theme creating music balloons floating free in the air. From Therese's card I took the colours - I just love purple and green! And, of course, this is a one layer card.
I cut some hearts on my Cameo, placed a few on the top of my card and lightly misted with purple Cosmic Shimmer spray. Once dry, I removed the heart shape, placed the stencil over the heart and stamped the music background into the heart. I stamped the word "Love" in Memento ink and then wrote in the rest of the sentiment. I drew the balloon strings by hand. I have a small group three balloons in the distance - they are coving an "oops" moment with a bit of green ink!!
I have to admit that I'm not entirely happy with this card. I think there's a kernal of good idea here somewhere, but I don't think I quite got it right!! Still I've made it so I'll share it. I think I was a bit heavy handed with the misting. I'd like to have some constructive feedback on this one!
I decided to go back and draw around the heart shapes to give more definition to the music balloons! I think this works so much better. It's not perfect, but a huge improvement.
Here's that link to Love is in the Air!
That's all for now - see you soon!
