Good Morning Blog Friends, hope you are all having a good week!
Today's card is a commission card I made last week, please excuse that I blanked out part of the greeting. I had been asked to add details of the baby's name, weight, date etc and thought it best not to share on the internet. I would normally make an additional label to cover it temporarily, but just didn't have time. It can be difficult when making cards for people I don't know.
This is an 8x8 card blank, the edges of which have been coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink. I used a smaller square, which was embossed with an M-Bossability folder and a matt and layered this with die cuts from Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles. The top layer, which was coconut white card was stamped with the LOTV baby image and sentiment.I then stamped the image again, coloured it with promarkers and cut out just the hammock to give some depth.
Thank you for your comments on yesterday's card..I'm glad you liked the snowman because he is one of my own drawings! It's a watercolour I painted some years ago. I'm no good at drawing or painting from my mind, but I can usually muster by with a picture or idea to look at - this was one of a series of images I drew based on photos in some US magazines I have, which feature Prim and Folk Art crafts.
Quick post today, hope you are all having a good week,
