Enjoy - Retirement
I started with the hot air balloon which says Let's Fly Away and symbolizes leaving the current behind. I found here at Altered Artifacts. I trimmed it and inked the edges with a deep eggplant color. I chose a page from the spanish dictionary which I trimmed then painted with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Stain. Dried it and then inked the edges with the same ink pad as the balloon. I adhered the words then the balloon image. I added a scalloped handmade paper circle in a brown. I added a circle colored with the same distress stain as before. Once dry I adhered it to the brown. The greeting is vellum so I applied snail adhesive to all the back then placed it in the center of the pink circle. Really happy with this one.
