Welcome to the World
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and a warm welcome to my new followers. It has been a glorious day here in Scotland today and it's so lovely to hear the birds singing happily and lawnmowers starting to cut the grass, a sign early summer is on its way.
I had a Baby card to make this week, I really enjoy making this type of card. Normally when I have one to make I use Magnolia Tilda but I thought for a change it would be nice to make a vintage style one and incorporate a couple of challenges.
I stamped my image with Archival ink and kept the baby and young child's face a matt finish and around their clothes and hair I used my Versamark pen and double embossed with fine embossing powder, heating from underneath to give a smooth finish.
The little footprints were made by pouring some Utee from my meltpot onto my craft mat and pressing my little footprints stamp which was protected from the heat with some Versamark on it. Once set I rubbed a little gilding wax over it.
I wish to enter this in the following challenges:
We Love Vintage Challenge – Baby Card
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge – Pearls and Lace
That Craft Place –Anything Goes
