I found in my stash origami paper which I had bought at a thrift store. I thought the orange would be perfect to use as a mat as well as to stamp the wish Big! which is one of the sentiments on the sheet of Unmounted Sentiments 1. If you are in need of sentiment stamps the unmounted sheets are a bargain and you are sure to have the perfect sentiment on hand.
After my molding paste was dry I then painted with acrylic paint. I used two different colors on the ballon and metallic copper on the basket. To give more definition I outlined my image with Sharpies.
I hope you enjoyed your imaginary trip in a hot air balloon. Do come back for more Just For Fun with stamps. The designers have all kinds of fabulous projects in the works to share with you.
