New BLOG Banner - Up, Up and Away
I'm so excited about my new blog banner. The design all began with 2 cute punch art frogs. Then, I was going to set them up in a pond back drop but figured that it may be to much green around. Since we have all our new IN COLORS, I just said, why not just situate the cute frogs in a colorful environment. Then the balloons came into mind. Why not just have them ride in a balloon, up in the sky :)
I used the "Up, Up and Away" stamp set #122757- clear; #122755- Wood. The New colorful embossing powders are also helpful. It gave a very bright color finish on the balloons using the 2-step technique.
Also, I used the Tasteful Trim XL Bigz Die #120983 for the ropes and embossed it with the new Textured Embossing Folder #123128 (slanted). It just looks perfect for the balloon ropes!
Anyway, I hope you like it! :)
