Welcome Little One
I knew I was going to colour up this cutie arriving by balloon for a baby boy, but when it came to finding papers I realised that I have a serious gap in my stash .. .. hardly any baby blue (aqua blue a plenty but no baby blue). I guess I will have to go shopping .. .. or get my printer fixed so I can print some of my Nitwit digi designs.
Anyway, I've coloured my image with Copic pens and added highlights with a gold Copic Spica and a clear Stardust pen - and of course it's not showing up!
Here then is the card created with scraps of Nitwit papers I did manage to find. I've added the faux embossed stitching to the edges then used Pumice Stone DI on everything to give a vintage feel - has it worked? To embellish I've stamped the text, an old one from Cuddly Buddly, and added various Marianne Design die cut bits and pieces. The little flower centres are actually button die cuts but I've covered up the holes with the big gems .. .. a little larger than I would have liked but all I had in my stash was these big gems or the tiny little ones I've added to the corners. I cut out the 3 nappy pins and tied them up with a scrap of blue ribbon to match the ribbon in the image.
Here's the list of Marianne dies I've used:
the faux stitches and the lacy edge across the bottom - LR0161
nappy pins - LR0217
swirls - LR0112
leaves - LR0226
flowers - LR0107 & LR0188
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
A Creative Romance for something new, Totally Papercrafts for new beginnings, Crafty Little Fairies with starting over (new things), Creative Inspirations for Celebrations, the Marianne Design Divas have an anything goes theme but you must have at least 3 MD products on your creation (hope all my dies count as more than 1).
