PDCC70 with Ruby 2 Shoes

It's been a challenging creative week this week, mainly because I've been sharing my art room with water. It's flooded 3 times this past week, so I've become accustomed to standing in water while I craft :) This week over at the Play Date Cafe is a really fun and vibrant colour combo and an awesome inspirational photo to match. Here is what it looks like:

I've been on a CAS kick all week, probably due to the fact that I can only handle the water for so long (lol). Here is what I came up with:

I started with a white base and stamped a couple of clouds in the center. The hot air balloon die cut image as well as the stamp image are from Papertrey Ink.. I colored the hot air balloon stamp with Only Orange, Gable Green and Tempting Turquoise. After I stamped the outline image over top, I went back and shaded in darker areas with my markers. Finishing touch was the sentiment with a splash of the same orange color
