Crafty Little Fairies Challenge - Up & Away

It's time for a new Crafty Little Fairies Challenge, and this week the theme is:

'Up & Away'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Delicious Doodles:
Prize - 4 digi images of the winner's choice!

I've used a Lili of the Valley stamp called 'The Lost Balloon'...I just love the expressions on their faces! I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then added Glossy Accents to their balloons. The papers are from a pad by Michaels called 'Charming' that I picked up recently in TKMaxx...I distressed all of the edges using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink and my distressing tool, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
