Simon Says Challenge: Inspired By...

I can find a lot of inspiration in the creative work of a number of people I follow, but I narrowed this challenge down to two of my favorite inspirations - Tim Holtz and Steampunk.
I also have a challenge with my art group to create a giant tag with a spring theme, and I think this works for that also.
Background and tried clear resist for the gentleman. It looked ok until I added the sky.
Used these on the bottom of the tag for the "ground".
Used these on the "sky".
Wanted the man to stand out more so went over him with the archival ink.
Stamped the air balloons with archival ink.
Working out some different ideas for the tag.
Up Up and Away for a spring adventure...tea anyone? Travel? Gardens? Imagination? Well, it says spring to me at least :)
Happy Spring everyone!
