Life is better with friends...


I've been playing around a bit with the new Flying High set from Hello Bluebird and the results have been a lot of fun. Rather than use the critters in the hot air balloon basket as intended, I've instead been pairing them with different stamp sets to create all kinds of scenarios. For this first card that I'm sharing I have taken the two stamps in the Flying High set that have elephants and did some strategic inking and masking to have them right next to each other. I paired them with one of the cuties from the older Elephant Friends set and used the wall builder from the Snowball Fight set to create the wall between them. You can see the transformation from snow fort to rock wall is as simple as your color choices. With all of that masked off I added in some tropical looking leaves and flowers using the Jungle Littles and More Jungle Littles sets until I finally had my desired scene. Who knows, maybe these two are convincing their new friend to go on a hot air balloon ride with them, LOL!   

Well thanks for stopping by!
