Sunday Stampers - Dreamer

Well, right now no doubt like most of the country I am dreaming that Andy Murray will win the Mens Final at Wimbledon... and Hels' Sunday Stampers challenge "dream" is perfectly named.... however I went in a different direction....

 Took a jumbo sized tag, covered it with a map of the Norfolk Broads (which I know is a favourite place of Hels', and aged it with old paper distress ink, edging round the tag with walnut stain.
Stamped the Tim Holtz hot air balloon - I'd love a trip in one of these.... on white card, coloured it with dusty concord and seedless preserves. found some purple ribbons to match the balloon.
and stamped the Dylusion 'dream' stamp on another scrap of white card, edged with pan pastel and mounted on black card and attached with foam dots for a bit of depth.

Now, come on Andy!!
