Welcome Little One

Hi!!

I hope everyone at a lovely long weekend!! (at least everyone in the US!!) We had great weather here in Michigan and of course lots of great food! But its the start of a new week and have to get back at it!! It also means the start of my second summer class - Precalculus!! Ugh!! Its going to be a tough couple months that i am not looking forward to, but i got to do and i have to pass!! Ok enough of that!! On to the card!!!

I decided to make a baby card for my stash and i wanted to do a little watercoloring! To use soft yet bright colors i decided to use PTI inks as my watercolors!  To start i stamped one of the star backgrounds from Star of the Show set from The Alley Way Stamps. I stamped it with versamerk ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then i stamped 4 of different baby images from Nap Time (are these not the CUTEST baby images, like ever?!?!) hehehehe, anyway i pulled out my PTI inks and experimented to find the right mix of colors. Generally a light and dark color, then with some water colored the images. I cut them out and set the aside.

I used the darkest colors from the images to do my background. First i used big brush to wet down my star panel, then i pressed the ink pads onto clear blocks. With a wet paint brush i picked up each color and dabbed it around randomly. When the ink was down i brushed the panel with a wet brush to mix the colors, adding color to particular areas if they needed it!

For my sentiment i found a already cut double ended banner. I stamped the Welcome Little One sentiment and added it to my panel with foam dots. I did the same with the baby images once i liked there arrangement. Last i rounded the corners!

I love how the colors turned out!! I hope everyone has a great week! Make sure you stop by later this week as we have a new The Alley Way Stamps release coming up!!
