Good Morning and thanks for visiting!
As most of you probably know already, Whimsy Stamps has discontinued their digital stamp sale, and therefore the Rubber Stamp design team is now creating a monthly card for the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations challenge. This month our challenge theme is
I thought this cute baby stamp illustrated by Crissy Armstrong would be perfect for this challenge, and since it has bee quite some time since I last used it, I decided to ink it up.
I love how this card turned out! The sketch came from a card I pinned a long time ago. I was going to use pink designer paper, but my husband thought a bluish toned paper would look nicer and since he so much more artistic than I am, I followed his advice. And I am happy I did!
Image has been colored with copic markers. The papers I used are really old, I found them digging through my paper scraps. They are probably both by SU. I used a Faber Castell pitt marker for the white dots on the baby's outfit. Embellished with some lace tape, twine and a rhinestone, and finished off with glitter on the stars. I have no idea why all the white looks pinkish in the photo above. It looks white on the camera, but then when I crop and edit it turns pink. This actually happens to me every time there is some pink in my cards.
Here is the product list:
Cradled by the Moon, Life's Moments (both by Whimsy Stamps)
Designer paper scraps, xpress blending card, recollections 110lb white
memento ink, copics for coloring
twine, lace tape, rhinestone, glitter
