FULL OF HOT AIR

Lucky Seven

A mixture of Copic  & Distress Markers were used for the ground area, detailing the flying birds, the balloon baskets, some TH Sprocket Gears as well as TH Metal Number 7. 
 Which btw some of you are asking the significance of the #7.  It's just always been my lucky number since I was a child.   It pleases my eyes... always did.

I love Lisa Pavelka's Micro Elements can you tell??

Where is the Man w/ the Umbrella in one of the pics?
Balloon and airplane stamps by Heidi Grace - Travel



The big Hot Air Balloon was TH, Stampers Anonymous's
Remnants CMS 130 - 
I then traced the outline on a heavy piece of chip board via "V" to become the base of the balloon and for sturdiness.   I then cut the material I had in the shape of the balloon but left lots of extra for the filler of the balloow.  The filler that is used by Quilters can be found at any craft store.  The tag itself was cut from TH Tag Die of Ranger Glossy Accent paper.  I extended the length of the tag to accommodate the big balloon w/o interfering with the quoted stamp by TH,  Stampers Anonymous stamp


The tag itself was cut from TH Tag Die and Ranger's Glossy Accent paper . I extended the length of the tag to accommodate the big balloon w/o interfering with the quoted stamp I wanted to use by TH, Stampers Anonymous.

So beautiful! Does the #7 have any significance, like for a birthday, anniversary? Just wondering.
