Up Up and away

I have a card to share today using a Penny Black stamp from a transparent set.
this months challenge over at Penny Black and more is Birthdays and this week Less is More have a challenge UP UP and Away! So I thought I would combine them both.

On the stamp the balloon is on a shorter string but I wanted it to look like the little hedgehog was floating away so I masked off the balloon before stamping my hedgehog onto some white card, I then masked off the Hedgehog and stamped the balloon, then draw a line in black pen.
I have sponged the background with distress inks (need more practice), and coloured the image with promarkers, I have added some glossy accents to the balloon.
The sentiment is from the same transparent set.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
