The ballons are of course by Make it crafty which you can get Here there is a great scene which goes perfectly with the balloons too, which I was gonna do till blisters burst, but you can see that HERE
HOW TO DO THE SKY
Mountain Meadow Big and Juicy Pad.
I took most of the ink of on scrap paper then lightly brayered onto the glossy card. I then got a slighly wet paintbrush and removed the ink where I wanted my clouds and dried straight away with a piece of kitchen towel. I then brayered the same colours on again (still very lightly) which gave a lighter shade to the clouds. I then took some of the darker mauve ink from the pad on my paintbrush and highlighted the clouds ( I used quite a wet paintbrush) and the wiped majority of it off again with paper towel. When dry I gave it a bit of a polish with the towel. Hey presto done in under 5 mins and no sore fingers.
