Starry Baby Blue

Welcome

This is another card using the liquid pearls as a background on the feature panel


I started with a piece of (re-cycled) glossy card - I wanted a blue background, but have no blue liquid pearls, so rubbed some Faded Denim DI onto the panel before putting on the white liquid pearls.  Because the card was glossy, the ink did not dry and I have a fabulous blue background!  I later added dabs of light green and gold liquid pearls, but did not rub them into the background.


The main image was from a new set of stamps (bought at the big fair at the beginning of July) called Party Paws Baby Bamboo By Crafter's Companion. Unfortunately I cannot find a link for you. It was coloured with prismacolor pencils and fussy cut.  The edges that went off the base were held up with some foam tape.



Both sentiments were stamped with Versamark and Faded Denim inks and then clear embossed.  The word baby was four separate stamps, and took me a while to line up using my MISTI.  I filled the letters using a silver Signo pen.


The edge was die cut with an edgabilities die, sponged and then had the pearls adhered.


The final details were a few gold stars adhered, and a strip of the background paper added to the inside to help highlight the border.

What a beautiful baby card Maxine! I love that pearl background, so gorgeous!! That bear and star is just adorable too and I love the way you colored them. Love the zig zag side too, all the textures in this card are fabulous! Yes, I have my hands full with Savannah! Once she is trained it will be easier, and she will be going to training school since I haven't a clue how to train a big dog! lol Hugs, Brenda

Wow, this is so cute...Love the image too! So glad you linked up your creation with us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in 1 Corinthians 1:18 which says, "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." Be blessed!
