The Golden Age of Ballooning




I made this card for this month's Steampunkery challenge. I used a selection of stamps from the Artistic Outpost French Flight and Paris Exposition sets, using different shades of ink to co-ordinate with the background paper. I stamped the man in the hot air balloon in the darkest shade of blue, as I wanted him to be the focal point. I finished it off with an Eco Green Chipboard Propeller, covered in gold embossing powder. I am sending this card to my brother for his birthday as I think it would be a good style for a man.
