Just Us Girls Challenge - Inspiration

Nancy has a beautiful inspiration photo for us this week!

Don't forget to check out our Guest Designer for this month - Calypso!

I LOVE hot air balloons!  The background is all sponged.  The mountain was created by tearing a strip of post it note and sponging along the edge.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa and Espresso Truffle, then added a little bit of WPlus9 white ink with my finger to create a bit of fog around the top of the mountain.  Then stamped the trees from Gina K with Memento Northern Pine ink. The balloons are by Repeat Impression, stamped and colored with Touch Twin markers and then adhered onto the mountain scene.  Layered the scene onto some dark brown cardstock and then to the Gina K Denim Blue card base.

Can't wait to see how this photo inspires you!

Here are the links to the JUGS blog and design team
