Baby Girl

I'm back! It's been a busy weekend again with family and not much else happening. I stuck a handful of tiles on the kitchen wall, then one fell off the next morning .. .. it's been that kind of weekend! My cold isn't clearing as fast as I would like and I'm left with catarrh that's a pain to shift first thing, so I'm definitely in a go slow mood right now.

I thought I should do a baby girl card after the last baby boy one. This time I have used an older LOTV stamp together with the same text as before. The paper is more of the magazine freebie from Nitwits with edges inked in Sahara Sand Versamagic chalk ink, and the mats are a soft coral pink textured card from my stash.

I've coloured with Copics: skin tones E000, E00 and E01; peachy pinks R00, R20 and R21; creams E50, E51 and E53; shading E40 and E81. The embellishments are Nellie's Choice punch and emboss sets - the tiniest butterfly and the 2 small retro flower sets. I've added in snips of Marianne diecuts from LR0156 and LR0157 then finished with little sticky back pearls and ribbon from my stash. It's just a little card, but I think quite sweet and I'd like to enter it into the Cupcake Craft challenge for something new and the One Stop Craft challenge where they are playing bingo! I have the top line = distressing (my inked edges), ribbon and flowers.

And, before I go, you must stop by the LOTV Ideas to Inspire blog as they are giving away 12 stamps to one lucky winner - you gotta be in it to win it!

  3. The patchwork effect is lovely with this little girl & I love your colours - a little different from the normal pinkiness for baby girls. Take care with that cold.
