Sorry I'm a day late (and $1 short too after tax day). I've just been consumed with the coverage of all the horror that is going on in our world. For my readers in Boston particularly, I'm so sorry that your beautiful city was touched by such darkness and evil. Those of you in West, Texas I can't tell you how saddened I am over the loss of life there. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. . .
I made this for Joan Fricker. . .Some of you might know Joan from Joan's Gardens. She lives here in the northern part of the state of Indiana. She has a fun blog and runs challenges too. Joan just had a complete knee replacement (which went well I read on her blog) and I wanted to send her a card wishing her a speedy recovery. I thought this House Mouse/Happy Hopper was perfect because of the leg cast (and they threw in an ear cast too! LOL). Of course, it is colored with my pencils and oms. I drew all the stuff on the cast because the cast is blank when stamped. Hope Joan is back to normal in no time!
The paper had these wonderful tie die patterns on it and I thought sure they would fit inside the hot air balloon die and they did. It made a fun design on the balloon. I embossed the clouds for more texture and used distress ink to sponge the background sky. The sun was created from a die as well. I freehand cut the "hills" and finished it off with a computer generated sentiment.
