Hot Air Balloon Travel

Hello all the Blank Page Muse Stamp fans.
Here is a steampunk, distress, hot air balloon travel postcard.
What goes well with steampunk?
A Octopus of course!
Come with me on a journey with steampunk travel.

 Stamps Used:
Chicken Wire Mesh 
Chicken Wire Mesh
Single Dandelion Blowing by Terri Sproul
1887 Vertical Number
Hot Air Balloon from Octopus Time sheet
Octopus from Octopus Time sheet

Other Supplies:
White Cardstock
Craft Cardstock
Tissue Paper
Distress Ink
Copic Marker
Black ink
Glue stick
Heat gun
 First take a piece of 4x6 white cardstock and color it with distress inks. It takes many different colors to make it look vintage. Spritz water for the drip effect.
Next stamp the following:
                                              Single Dandelion Blowing by Terri Sproul
                                                            1887 Vertical Number
 Stamp randomly all over your background. Do all the stamping in brown ink except the dandelion seeds. Stamp them in black.
 Next grab some tissue paper. What was used here was some tissue paper that had newspaper text on it already. Stamp the Hot Air Balloon from Octopus Time sheet 5 times. Heat set so they wouldn't smear.

                                      Then color with some brown ink. Heat set them also.
Cut out just the balloon part from the tissue. Fold in half and glue parts together of each one to make a honeycomb. Set aside to dry.
 Stamp the balloon onto craft cardstock. Color that in with brown ink. Cut out. This will be your base to hold the honeycomb balloon top.

 Then take your honeycomb balloon top and glue it to the top of your cut out craft balloon piece.
On a scrap piece of white cardstock stamp the Octopus from Octopus Time sheet. Color with a  marker and fussy cut out. Cut in half and add to the of corners of the piece.
I hope you all enjoyed the journey on steampunk travel.
