Up, up, and away

     Is this one bright or what!?!  LOL  This was my first attempt at inking an embossing folder.  Next time I'll check for stray ink in the creases, but for right now we're calling them sun spots.  LOL
     The bear, balloon, and sentiment are from Purple Onion Designs.  I stamped the bear and cut off the sparkler he is holding so I could put the balloons in his hand.  I didn't stamp the balloon strings so I could add the embroidery floss.  Hope the happy yellow brightens you day.

Be blessed!

Paper--Canson XL 140 lb. cold press watercolor, Recollections, Paper Studio vellum

Ink--Heidi Swapp Mustard, Archival Jet Black, Versafine Black Onyx
Tools--WeRMemory Keepers embossing folder
Miscellaneous--Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen, DMC embroidery floss, Pretty Pink Posh sequins
