Hello Baby

Friday, September 21, 2012


I'm really enjoying playing with my new Easy Events Stamp Set.  The current Just Add Ink challenge is to create a Baby/Children's card so I've chosen the little duck from this set to feature on this design.  I have fussy cut the image out and layered it up on dimensionals.  I've coloured the image with blender pen and added a little crystal effects to the umbrella and beak for shine.


I've used the new Stampin' Up! Primrose Petals Pink as my main colour with a dash of So Saffron Yellow and Baja Breeze Blue on a base of Very Vanilla to create a lovely soft colour palette perfect for a baby theme.

To finish the card I added a little string of banners to the top corner.  The Paper Players challenge this week inspired this thought.

After sticking the banners down in place I paper pierced a trail along the top and then drew some lines between each hole to create a faux stitching effect.
