Hi Everyone! I've been itching to use the new patina paints I picked up last week and the first thing I wanted to paint with them is these gears. The new Cheery Lynn Vintage Hot Air Balloon has been calling to me too. I use the smaller hot air balloons a lot and this one is different enough both in size and style that it needed a place in my die collection.
I love how the background of the balloon is a perfect fit behind so it's easy to add additional colors. I'm looking forward to cutting and paper piecing different colors inside the balloon to create a different look.
I painted the Gears and embossed both the Vintage Hot Air Balloon and the heart lock from the Whimsical Lock and Key set. I adhered the front of the balloon to the background with a tinted glaze. I found the sentiment in a paper pack and thought it was the right size to add to the card. Last I added the black rhinestones and the gold thread to the lock.
