Just Us Girls #233 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hi friends!  It's time for another challenge at Just Us Girls.  This week is our Photo Inspiration challenge brought to us by Nancy.  She chose this great hot air balloon photo with great colors.

Here's a close up of the photo so you can see more details.

I chose to go with the colors and another thing that flies...kites!  I've had this kite die from MFT for quite a while but never used it.  I cut it out using a retired paper from SU called Jersey Shore.  I've always loved the colors in this paper and the patterns.  The white piece was run through a cloud folder and then the clouds were covered with some Wink of Stella shimmer.  To get the string to loop, I just put some multi matte medium on it, looped it, and let it dry.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

You can see more the design team on these blogs as well as our Guest Designer.
