Step 2: Position and trace a variety of balloons in the sky, getting smaller towards the corner for perspective.
Step 3: Add a cloud or two in the sky, one large enough for the sentiment. Mask them all with Pebeo Drawing Gum.
Step 4: Build up your sky, using shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch, try not to be too even with this to add texture to the sky.
Step 5: Remove the Drawing Gum and strengthen the line with a fine liner pen.
Step 6: Colour your balloons with your choice of alcohol markers and colours.
Step 7: Stamp ‘Let your Spirit Soar’ with Versafine black ink.
Step 8: Trace some more balloons , colour them and cut out with scissors.
Step 9: Using the stencil ‘Trent’, position over the balloons, ink through with Versafine black ink.
Step 10: Layer your card onto a black mat leaving a narrow border, then mount onto your base card. Secure the extra balloons in place with 3D glue gel, then coat with glossy accents for the beautiful shine.
