I'm back! Hopefully good and regular for a while now. I've had a lovely time away with my family (although it was HOT where we were...40+ every day) and am feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new year!
There has been a fair bit of cute happening around here lately, with my twin nieces just hitting the 7 week mark. They are just adorable, and very good babies too (what a blessing!). I have even had them overnight to give my SIL and BIL a break. I just love the sentiment on this card, and I made one similar to this for my SIL when she had her girls:
I stamped the main image in Black stazon ink, and watercoloured with my Aquapainter and Watercolour crayons. These are my favourite way to colour, and give the most fool-proof results on regular cardstock (in my opinion). I wanted some Barely Banana ribbon, and Stampin' Up! don't have any, so I just pulled out my standby White Taffeta ribbon, and coloured it with a Barely Banana marker. The Polka dot paper is "Bali Breeze" (from the Summer Mini). I felt like the card needed a little extra something to balance the right-hand side, so I trimmed the edge off, attached a piece of Whisper White cardstock inside, and stamped 'All Scallops' in Regal Rose ink. The little jumpsuit was crying out for some bling, so I used some Tombow glue and Chunky glitter on it. It's lovely and pink and sparkly in real life.
