More Babies

It's been a long break between postings here - it's good to be back, and thank you all for calling by.
What is it about this year - there seems to be babies galore expected - including a couple of grand babies for us :-) - so I thought I would get a head start on some more cards....

I also decided to enter the digital age and use a digi-stamp from Digital Two for Tuesday, of a mother and babe - I coloured the image with chalks and then mounted it in different modes - as you can  see.  I kept the backgrounds simple to emphasise the image as it is so peaceful.  The greeting was computer generated also and then cut using Nestabilities labels.

The other card seemed to be a law unto itself and to have a (rebellious) life of it's own - the main image was stamped at least four times before I was happy with it! I am still not completely happy with the base-card and the ink that I sponged it with, but it has to stay!!  The textured layer was done using a cuttlebug  'd'vine swirls' embossing folder.  The purple flowers came from a gift of bits I was given, and I finished them off with a little bling which made all the difference, but I must say I was pleased to finish this card!.  

Thanks for calling by - I treasure all the comments you leave.
