Oh! When this challenge at Dragons Dream came up I felt a sinking feeling at first - then remembered seeing something early one morning while at the caravan last week! Here is my tag-
so now you know what I saw…..
The background is a combination of distress inks allowed to run a little before blotting. I then used some linen texture stamps to make clouds! As you can see the morning light has become a sunset light getting bit obsessed by sunsets - help!)
Now, if you are old enough you may remember a 1953 film called The Yellow Balloon - I wasn't allowed to see it at the time but have seen it several times on TV, it stars one of my favourite actors, Kenneth More and was quite a scary tale of a young lad whose friend had an accident while chasing a yellow balloon, the villain makes threats to him as he is aware that the lad has seen him murder someone else!
Anyway, my balloon is flying over the crags and off up to the Lake District - a much cheerier thought!
The balloon stamp is from a Prima set which I stamped onto the tag and then onto a piece of card that I coloured yellow and cut out the top of the balloon to stick over! I drew in the birds with a fine pitt pen. The crags are made by masking off with ripped paper and using black soot distress with Walnut Stain around the edges.

Thanks for looking, Chris
