"Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge"

Happy Sunday My Friends,
I hope you've had or are having a relaxing weekend. Most of us will have to get back on the grind tomorrow. I love my scrapping weekends. It calms me down from the busy week that I've had and I get soooo much done.
Anyhew, Papertrey Ink (PTI) is having their September Blog Hop Challenge and it's a "Inspirational Photo" challenge. Here is the photo and my take on it. Hope you like.
Sept-Blog-Hop-Inspiration
I love the colorfulness of this card and I did masking for the first time with some PTI clouds after die cutting them. I even masked the little mountain at the bottom. I'm sooo proud of myself for trying this my first time. I then carefully colored each Hot Air Ballon one by one in with my markers. Since I love playing with my inks, I know I'll be doing this technique again.
Recipe:
Paper: PTI (Stampers Select White card base-A2)
Tools: PTI (Clouds & Up, Up, & Away Dies) & Up Up & Away Stamp Set, Perfect Pearls (on blue sky), Distress Broken China, MS Craft Chalk Ink, EK Punch (Labels), Memento (tuxedo black), Shapie UF Markers, Marvy Uchida Markers.
I am also entering this into:
Celebrate the Occasion - Birthday (must use balloons). I hope my twist of using Hot Air Ballons count. (lol).
