Up, Up and Away

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Gosh what a dreadful day here today, it has persisted down all day.  Rick in his wisdom has started decorating this afternoon!  Me I am keeping well out of it!  Had a fabulous day crafting, got a few more DT work finished, still more to do but will finish them off tomorrow.

On Thursday night I ordered some crafting goodies Graphic 45 Steampunk Spell stamps from Ali-Craft which arrived today so just had to have a play them.  Here is what I made.


1. 6 x 6 square Kraft card.
2. Second layer paper from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper pack
3. The topper I have used watercolour card and distressed with PanPastels, I stamped the air balloon with Memento, masked the first one and stamped the other two.  I coloured the image with distress inks.
4. The Kraft ticket I have added Tim Holtz Chit Chats outlined the words with black pen and faux stitching around the edge of the ticket.  I have also added faux stitching around the base of the card too.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
