Welcome Baby - CAS on Sunday #65

Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby

I made this card for my best friend's daughter who recently had the most beautiful baby girl.  I hope she likes it.

I watercoloured underneath the vellum piece I sewed on.  You can't see a lot of the watercolouring but I like the subtle look it gives.

I am going to put this in the CAS on Sunday challenge - Vellum.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Little Tangles Challenge #59 - Birthday


Hi.  Our new challenge is a project relating to 'Birthday'.  I am always needing birthday cards so it was a great challenge for me.

I heat embossed the balloon images from the Just For You stamp set from Neat and Tangled, and watercoloured them using my distress ink pads.  After fussy cutting them I placed them around a MFT die cut, added some metallic thread and added the sentiment from the same set which I had also heat embossed and fussy cut.

I love the way the watercolour looks, I am waiting for a Kuretake Gansai Tambi set to arrive (yay!) but I must say I am pretty impressed with the look you can get from distress inks.

Well I hope you can join us.......... you can link your birthday project up here!

I am also going to join in the Seize the Birthday Challenge - Embossing.

Thanks so much for stopping by x
