Balloon Travel + SSS Wednesday Challenge

I'm just squeezing this in to a Monday post. haha. It's 11:30 where I live. Ooops. 
But today I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: (Floating away on balloons counts as a type of transportation, right? haha)

I started by stamping and masking the balloon repeatedly to create the cluster of balloons, then took a black sharpie to create the strings. I stamped the deer and then coloured the deer and balloons in with distress inks and a water brush. I also water coloured the grass. I die cut the balloons from white cardstock and adhered them down. 
 I inked around the edges with tumbled glass distress ink and then adhered it to an A2 card. I chose to not add a sentiment because I felt like it would have been too much on the card and I didn't want to add anything else. I loved how it turned out, and it would work well for almost any occasion!
