Inkspirational: Photo

Happy Saturday! It's time for a new Inkspirational challenge, and we have a beautiful photo inspiration for you! It turned out to be a tricky one for me - no hot air balloons, no mountains... but here's what I came up with:

A helium balloon works too, I hope! :D Originally I wanted to make the balloon the colours of the water, but couldn't make it work, so I did my best to replicate the rainbow of the hot air balloon in the pic. I blended the colours through the largest balloon stencil I had. I wasn't thrilled with how the colours blended, so I did the obvious and added glitter! :D Masking off the balloon, I added the cloudy sky to the background. 

Visit the Ink blog to see the beautiful interpretations of the photo from my talented teammates! And then I hop you will join us. 

Supplies: Neenah white cardstock, Clearly Besotted Sweet Little Sentiment stamp, Versamark onyx black, tumbled glass, candied apple, carved pumpkin, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron & blueprint sketch ink, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Studio Katia birthday balloons duo & MFT cloud stencils, MFT wonky stitched rectangle & blueprints 29 dies, Nuvo moonstone glimmer paste, black Sharpie pen

Pin It Now!

Crushing over your sparkly balloon! Glitter can be a wonderful fixer-upper, even though I'm sure your blending was fantastic without it. With: only all the more sensational!

Your sparkly balloon is certainly a perfect replica of the rainbow colored hot air balloon. Fabulous inky clouds foo. You might have found it tricky but the result does not show it:)
