I used Basic Grey's Archaic 6 X 6 paper pad and stamped directly onto and cut out. I coloured with a green Copic marker, grayish olive to fill in some of the open space.
I stamped an old basket stamp that I had in my stash and cut off the handle and straight cut the sides to resemble the carrying basket and then I attached some black wire to the basket and added a narrow strip of the Archaic stripe to the basket and secured the basket and ballon together with a thin black wire.
The plastic letters are from an unused box of Spare Parts letters that I have had for a couple of years.
I had fun making this "balloon" card and wanted to thank the folks over at Impression Obsession for this challenge that really made me think...out of the box!
Thanks for taking a peek,
