I decided I would start to build my card stock again and as it's Spring and there are babies being born in the animal kingdom I decided to start with a baby card. I don't need a baby card as I don't know anyone having a baby so thought I'd make it a general baby card not gender orientated hence the colours.
I love this sugar nellie image it's just so super cute.I stamped it onto white card and coloured it with promarkers in peach, almond, putty, lemon, grey and pink and a touch of mint for balance.
I die cut it out using a stitched rectangle die from memory box but decided it was too long so I cut it in 2 halves to shorten it. I then used their alter star collage die cut into card and used this as a stencil and used spun sugar distress ink, after masking the coloured image.
I decided to use a peach pearlised base card and keep the card design simple and complete it with a die cut sentiment 'welcome little one' from poppystamps. I coloured it in lemon and then cut it out in the rectangle with the image on and inlay it.
I was quite happy with the results and now have a card in waiting should someone announce they have had a special delivery.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Creative with stamps -Baby
Just us girls -soft pastels
crafty catz - anything goes with a twist of animals
CAS on Sunday - stencil
AAA- CAS and use a stencil
Addicted to stamps -not a square(hope rectangles are ok)
CAS mix up - stamping,inlaid die and your choice(I choose stencil)
As you like it - favourite card shape
(I tend to gravitate to rectangle probably for ease and convenience and habit too)
