I used a blue, double-sided cardstock that is frosted white on one side (Core'Dinations) for the base and the die-cut clouds (IO). Inspired by the Steampunk quality of the image, I used stamps from Forever in Time's "Old Fashioned" set. I used gold, silver, or glittery white embossing powders, and inked the backgrounds with Sky Blue ink (Inkadinkado). I fussy-cut all the images, using my finger knife to cut the interior sections.
The hot air balloon is a wooden embellishment. I added some gear die-cuts to decorate the balloon, and glued a white cloud onto it. I used Broken China distress ink to stamp the sentiment (HOTP).
I colored Lady B and her Aerocruiser with Copic markers and gel & glitter pens. Her lap blanket is covered with Flowersoft; I didn't have yellow, so I died some Polar White Flowersoft with liquid Sunshine Yellow ink (TH/Ranger).
For the background, I used more of the white/blue cardstock, debossed it with a cloud-patterned folder (Darice), and sanded it to bring out the blue.
