Baby boom

Today I have made 2 new baby cards, one is for the very talented illustrator Alison Acton and the other is for one of my neighbours.

The first one is going to be sent to Alison and I am entering it into a special Whiff of Joy Candy Challenge.

I used an A4 piece of pearl blue card, which I cut down into a square card.
I used the extra piece as a wrap around the center and to hide a congratulations message. I coloured this cute Penny Black image with Promarkers.

The papers were free with a magazine and I finished it off with a pull bow ribbon, a button and a couple of charms.


The one for my neighbour is very similar using the same image and patterned papers. This one however is just a plain square card, that I covered with some paper that I painted myself using Starburst Stains from the Stampman. I followed the sketch on the Penny Black Challenge, although I did flip it. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a layered look and finished with a flower, button and charms from stash.
