City Crafter 309

Hello there...
 
I've been missing for a while and I'm way behind on comments but as you know I have been enjoying a visit from my dear friend Stella and on top of that I have been unsuccessfully battling a cold...
I think the loss of Gipsy last week must have left me quite low and I am only too glad that Stella came to visit ... I haven't laughed so much in a long time and I am already missing her....

So today as it happens, the new challenge at City Crafter has been set by Stella ...
The theme is Balloons
 
 
 
The card I made will be for my Great nephew Ross who has a birthday in a few weeks
 

It's a sort of slider card... Pull the tab at the top and the balloons go up


After cutting a slider front, I used the cityscape die (Clearly Besotted) and did a partial cut so that it was lengthened... if that makes sense... to fit the bottom part of the card and snipped off a portion in the centre to enable the slider to move...
I used distress inks to colour the cityscape and also to add 'rays'


The balloons ( Lil'inker) were coloured with Copics and I added glossy accents... The stitched frames are also Lil'inker, clouds are Memory box and the sentiment MFT

Our Guest Designer this week is the very talented Suchi - winner of week 301. Do go visit her and check out her lovely creations and don't forget to take a peek at the projects the rest of the team have up on the City Crafter Blog

Have a beautiful day 

~ Ros ~

Such a clever and inspirational card, I have never dared make one of these far too complicated if you ask me but yours is amazing. The colouring as always is divine and I love how all of the elements and colours work so harmoniously.
