These long, cold months in the midwest have had me dreaming of blue skies and travel. This card is the perfect way to welcome spring, so get cozy in your studio and follow along!

I started by blending a blue background on the front of my card using this fun mint colored dye ink. Next, I blended some gray ink onto a scrap paper and ran it through my Tangerine to create these fluffy looking clouds.
For the balloons, I used a coordinating stamp and die set that I had with my stamp platform and Tangerine. After allowing the ink to dry a bit, I covered the entire balloon die cut with the glitter gloss pen to really make them pop.
To create some dimension, I attached the clouds directly to the card using the Nuvo glue pen, then used foam squares on the two main balloons.
I stamped a sentiment in the open area of the card and colored in the word “GO” using the Nuvo markers. I am very new to alcohol based markers, but I’m having a lot of fun learning to blend with these pens.
After finishing the sentiment, I added another small cloud and balloon running off the edge of the card.
You can almost smell the fresh air. Thanks for joining me!
