So, the first thing that came to my mind was to use a digital stamp, hand colored, and lay it into my card front. I chose to use a digital stamp because that's what we specialize in here at Creative Knockouts! and because I really am in love with my CTMH watercolor pencils.
Here is what I came up with.
I found a digital hot air balloon stamp at Bird's Cards and I used the print and cut feature on the Cricut Explore to get it all ready to be colored. From CTMH I used the Seaside paper pack and I used the watercolor pencils, plus all of my basics.
All of die cuts are sliced out of my top front card layer, then also cut out using colored cardstock. I decided to layer the polka-dot dual side paper not only on the inside but also slightly peeking out of the card front. Hot air balloons remind me of the ocean for some reason and I thought this paper was perfect to show that.
Paper piecing is very simple and really easy to achieve so go ahead give it a try and then come on over to Creative Knockout and play along with our challenge.
