blue sky background!

happy cinco de mayo!! 
what a great way to start the week - it's a FUN day and a new challenge over at the lawnscaping blog! :)

this time, the challenge is to create your own background with lawn fawn
i accept this challenge! ha ha!

i used the clouds from the hello sunshine stamp set to create my own background. i stamped the clouds in distress inks (tumbled glass and peacock feathers) and then misted the card base with water! it looked really cool without the water spritzed background, and i wondered at first if i shouldn't add the water, but i added it anyway! lol! i mean, i used distress inks, after all! :)

the balloons are from the year four stamp set, LOVE that hippo there, but i stuck with just the balloons this time! all of the images were also colored with distress inks and then misted. i even added a tiny bit of shading to the images. 

lastly, i just popped up the bird and balloons and added some glossy accents to make the balloons shine! :) the sentiment is from starry backdrops and i stamped it right onto a vellum banner! :)

ok, so now it's your turn! :) i really hope you join in on the fun with this challenge!!
