Hot Air Balloon Father's Day Card w/ Masking technique

Created this Father's Day card using Masking Technique. I cut the clouds out of white cardstock with Die-namics Cloud Trio. Placed the clouds on the cardstock as masks. Used Stamp N Plus Sky chalk w/ VersaMark to color the sky. Removed the clouds and the shape of the clouds was left. Stamped the sentiment and cut into 3 words to place on the 3 clouds. Stamped Hot Air Balloon. Colored the stamped Hot Air Balloon with pencil colors. Cut the Hot Air Balloon out and used foam adhesive to make 3D pop on card.
