Welcome baby card

Hey!

I made this card for my friend who just had a baby girl. I used Distress Markers (yeah I still love them) and Hero Arts stamp set Happy Day Animals.

I stamped the sheep on watercolour paper and masked them off with some masking paper. To create background I spread couple of colours of Distress Markers on plastic sheet, sprayed it generously with water and put watercolour paper face down on the plastic. When the paper dried I added some colour to the sheep, butterflies and flowers, added stickers to create sentiment and two wood veneer hearts. This technique was a bit out of my comfort zone but I love the effect. Enjoy!

Birthday card – Retrosketches #80

Hey!

Todays card was created using Retrosketches sketch #80. I love this sketch but for some reason it took me ages to decide on color scheme, stamps and papers I wanted to use. I’m still not convinced if I made the right choice but hey – it’s just a card.

Anyways, the sketch looks like this:
