I finally had time to get inky in my craft room today. I made some much needed mother's day cards. I have 8 to do for our mom's and my girlfriends. This card is one I did that I wasn't sure I liked how the background came out but now that it's done I think I really like it.
Background Technique: Faux Designer Paper - Dec 2008.
I did this welcome baby girl card for my cousin's daughter who is having a ... you guessed it... baby girl.
The image is a sweet rattle from I brake for stamps. I just love it. I colored it with copics. I did the background with the background whimsey - copic method from the TJ Newsletter using the same colors so they would match. Background and sentiment stamps are from Stampin Up!
I was so excited to be able to use this new stamp I got from I Brake for Stamps. I have lots more backgrounds that I can't wait to use it with. This is a simple card I make using the Twinkling H20's technique, however I added the black on top. I like the way the twinkling h20's gives it a watercolor look but I reallly wanted the stamp to be hightlighted so I stamped black ink over it. I like the way it came out.
Sentiment is from Stampin Up! Papers are from Stampin Up!, Gina K Designs and Paper Temptress.
Hope to have more this week as I have so many new stamps to play with...Hope work is SLOW....:)
WOW, I have some very exciting news. I have been invited to join the I Brake For Stamps design team. What an honor. I am so very excited as I have not been on a design team before. This winter I was invited to participate in the Rick Dennis exclusive stamp blog hop as a guest and it was thrilling. I loved every minute of it.
That being said, I was inspired to create this card with, of course, the IBFS small peacock stamp. I combined a new and old technique from the technique junkies newsletter. The techniques are Marbled Smoosh (Bonus 2006 CD) and Random Coloring (This month). I used Stampin Up! markers on the stamp and on the background. What fun and easy techniques for a stunning card.
I also used the 2 Stampin Up! markers to watercolor my flowers and used Stampin Up! cardstock so that everything would match!!!
The colors are my favorite and reminded me of spring...so I decided to make it into a Mother's Day card.
