Baby Blues

Greetings again - I managed some time in the studio today and made a baby card using this delightful digi from May Brit.


I used two different designs of baby dp from a Warehouse pack, and embossed them both with a folder called "Gem Swirls". 


The large piece was mounted on the white card stock base, and the smaller pieces mounted the panels of dark blue.


The image was coloured with chalks and 'fixed' with a quick spray of hair spray.  The edges of the image panel were sponged with blue ink.
This was attached to the base with sticky tape, but I used some foam spots in the top left corner to compensate for the layers,  it also gave a lovely sense of dimension to the whole.

I finished the card with a bow and some rhinestones - I had forgotten that I still had some of these larger, clear rhinestones in my stash.


I photographed this in the late afternoon and the white background of the image has taken the colour of the sun setting.... Ah but it was lovely to see the sun!

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling by - I love it when you leave a comment - it makes my day.
May your day be blessed.
