Good morning friends! This month's crafty Crafter's Companion challenge is to make a project using a "baby" theme. The Design Team are making baby cards all month long as a part of a virtual baby shower for Sara and we'd love for you to play along with us. You can make a scrapbook page, a card, a bag, a tag, anything with a baby theme is great.
I used Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers to color this adorable expecting mommy. The stamp is from . Here is a breakdown of how I colored my card. First I colored the mom's dress, hair bow, and shoes with colors BT4, BT5, BT7.
Next I used Spectrum Noir colors LY2, LY3, CT3 for the mom's apron and LG2, LG3 for the baby's swaddling blanket.
Using the colors FS1, FS2, FS3, I then colored the baby and mother's skin.
Lastly, I used GB8, GB9, and GB10 to color her hair. I made it a bit messy looking, as new moms tend to be ;) I remember my time as a mom to a newborn baby. The only reason my hair was even put up was so the baby couldn't yank it all out!
Once my stamp was colored, I then die cut my image. I also die cut the sentiment, "Time to Celebrate "(Angelica and Friends Jessica stamp set) which I had stamped with the Memento Teal Zeal.
I wanted to use a green ribbon on my card that would match the colors I used in coloring my S.w.a.l.k. New Mum stamp set, so I pulled out a cream ribbon which I customized by coloring it with the LG3 Spectrum Noir marker. I used the bigger chisel end to do this quickly. To make it easier, I taped down my ribbon to a paper towel before coloring it.
To pop out my sentiment, I also used the LG3 pen to create a faux stitching around the circle and a quick dot in each of the smaller circles. I adhered it to my card with Double-Side adhesive foam tape.
Here's another look at the completed card.
