Addicted to CAS Challenge # 91


Hi there, blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Fly'. Jaydee is our Hostess, and Create a Smile is sponsoring this challenge...The winner will receive a £15 voucher to the store!



PTI's Up, Up & Away was one of my first stamp sets, and I thought it would be fun to ink it up:  




I stamped the clouds with white pigment ink on soft stone cardstock, and used distress inks for the hot air balloons. It's difficult to see the clouds in this photo, so here is a close up:




I hope you'll take the time to stop by, and play along with us at the Addicted to CAS Blog ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Bar what a fresh design and the balloons look fabulous in distress ink! I have always loved the PTI set, one of the first I ever bought! When I first looked at this I thought it was for the PTI blog hop, you should enter it!
