Up With Elephants!

Virginia's View this month is all about color.  Now autumn has GORGEOUS color, but I decided to take a break from fall, and delve into the BRIGHTS:
hoarded kept my old water colored scraps and decided to turn them into balloons.  Each one was stamped with the balloon from one of my very favorite stamp sets, W+9's Unforgettable.  I colored up Ellie, also from Unforgettable, with Copics, and set her afloat by drawing strings from each balloon to her tail  (you can see that one balloon on the bottom left is losing its helium).  One floss bow ties them all together.  Some of the balloons are raised with foam tape.  The clouds behind Ellie are from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio dies. 
Ellie and her watercolor balloons are going over to play at the following challenges:
