Hello again crafty friends. Also, thank you for visiting. I really am humbled that people would take the time to pop in here, so heartfelt thanks to all of you. If you’re here for the first time, welcome! I display most of my cards here if you’d like a look.
I have three baby cards to share with you today, all made with the Baby Doodles stamp set from Paper Rose.
I stamped all the images from the set in antique linen Distress ink, and coloured them with watercolour markers. I have a range of markers in my stash, and I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Altenew brush markers for these cards.
The backgrounds for each of the cards used different dies. For the “It’s a boy” card above, I used the Multi Spot Background, and embossed the image into white paper. The “It’s a girl” card used the Polaroid Frame die and some very pale pink heart paper.
The elephant card uses the Card Creator 2 die, which is a lovely way to highlight smaller images.
The sentiments for the cards come from the Baby Sentiments 1 and 2, also by Paper Rose. I love this ‘a little something…’ sentiment – what a cute way to say you have a gift.
Her’s a close up of the colouring of one of the rabbit images. I cut the images out by hand, leaving a little white border. The face details were added on with a black marker once I’d finished the colouring. Don’t you love this cutie?
I hope you’re inspired to break out the watercolours. They really are like therapy, as long as you’re willing to let them have their own way!
Until next time, may you have much sweetness in your days.
