With Christmas and Valentine's day gone, blog land seems to have had a crystal ball out and there're a few challenges now for "New Baby". I say crystal ball because I have been asked to make no less than 7 new baby cards for the next couple of weeks. There must've been something in the water 9 months ago because of all of them are girls bar only one that we don't know yet. This is the first of the batch.
Using a new born line drawing found using Google.
The artist wasn't identified I'm afraid, so I can't give credit. I coloured the image using promarkers, smudging some pearlescent pink pigment ink round the edges and dots of stickles in the corners. This was layered onto pale pink pearlised CS. The bottom panel was pieced together using some baby papers (that were gifted to me by a friend a year ago when I first started making cards, so of unknown origin). Layered onto the pink pearlised and a scrap of darker pink paper. The "Sweet Girl" sentiment is from a selection of preprinted vellum sentiments.
The bouquet made from a selection of flowers from Crafty Feelings.
That's the bottom part of the card.
For the top part.....
I cut a circle from pearlised silver CS using decorative scissors to provide "grip" and stamped 6 baby images on it using stazon ink. Slightly coloured using pencils. Cut a hole from the top layers to allow those images to be seen (edged with silver peeloff) and secured with a brad.
Ribbon down the side and a "Ten tiny fingers.." stamp (Stazon ink) stamp. Finished off with some flock covered hands and feet brads that I cut the backs off and stuck on.
All mounted onto pink CS base.
I'm all pinked out now...... until tomorrow when I have to do another.
I am going to enter this into a couple of challenges
