Baby Card - The Paper Players Clean & Simple Challenge

Hello there!  I've been home sick yesterday and today (gladly recovered enough to know I'll be at work tomorrow) and decided to play along with the The Paper Players challenge that my friend Ina Grehan pointed me towards.  She knows I've been doing a few baby cards lately and thought to let me know about their challenge.  The challenge is titled: PP336: A Clean-and-simple challenge:

I don't really do single layer cards very often as I love die cutting images and popping them up, so this was a little step outside my comfort zone.  I even added some sequins, but hopefully not too many, lol, I left a lot of white space, so I think it's still CAS (clean and simple).

I used the stamp set from Lawn Fawn titled Little Bundle - been in my stash for a while, this is my first go at using it.  I coloured the image with some copic markers and a little gold pen on the buttons on the kids clothes.  All in all, it's the simplest card I've done in a while, and I hope you like it!  Stop by The Paper Players blog and see what the other entrants have made, and thanks for stopping by!

Cheers
Karen

Baby Cards #TheHumanRainbow

G'day everyone!  I have been making quite a few cards that I haven't blogged about yet, so I plan to get right on to that, starting with this post, all the baby cards I have recently made.

The stamp set is by Clearly Besotted "Peekaboo".  As soon as I saw this set, I fell in love.  Now, anyone who knows me knows that I am not a baby person.  I have no kids and plod along quite happily in my life without them, but these images are just so cute!  I think I owned them about a fortnight after first seeing them, due to waiting for shipping.  YouTube has a lot to answer for in my spending habits!

I also decided to have a play with my copic markers and try to make a bunch of babies from the human rainbow - i.e. all colours of babies, like in real life.  I first heard this expression from Sandy Allnock, who is a fantastic artist that I watch all the time on YouTube.  I suggest you check her out if you've been living under a rock and haven't heard of her! lol

When I thought of doing a human rainbow I realised how I don't think I've ever seen a baby card with any other colour of baby than pink/white.  If I ever sell any of these cards one day, at least my customers will have some choice!  I wish now that I'd written down the combination of markers I pulled out, by looking at Sandy Allnocks colour chart, but it's too late now.

Please have a look below and check out the baby cards made, enjoy and I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!

Cheers
