Up, up and away

Miri has set today's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers  - she'd like us to take off with lots of balloons this week!

I have a clean and simple scrapling to offer - who gets the movie reference?!

Miri may have been thinking  about "99 Red Balloons" but I was thinking about "Up". Ellie may only be in the first 10 minutes or so but she's the beating heart of the film so this is a wee homage to her as well as Carl. Just remember:

"Adventure is out there!"

I set out to make a single layer card by cutting a stencil (die cut circle with freehand bobbly bit for the knot) and inking inside the aperture. I then dropped several things in the white space - sigh! So I cut out the inky balloon with scissors and added it to a scrapling base with a doodled string and a word selectively inked from a longer sentiment.

Grgeous colour graduation on the balloon and the lay out with plenty of white space. Loved the film I took my grandchildren when they were smaller they loved it.

Spectacular take on the theme! I want to lift right up on your big balloon. The ombre colouring is the perfect touch.
