Today is my Mom's birthday so I thought I would share the card I created for her. I love these adorable images from Lili of the Valley. I wanted to use three different images on my card so I did some masking while stamping the images (more on that in a second). I paired my images with some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite line and sponge some antique linen distress ink on all the edges before adding some stitching before finishing everything off with some red buttons.
Like I said, I wanted to use these three images together on her card as they remind me of my children. I started by stamping the Baby Blanket image (to represent our baby boy, of course). Then, I masked the baby and stamped the Big Present image (to represent our oldest son). Last, I masked the boy image as well and stamped the Rosie with Presents image (to represent our daughter). Don't the images look cute all together like that? I colored the images with copic markers and sponged the antique linen ink around the edges before stitching my paper.
Here are the marker colors I used to color the image:
skin: E00, E21, E11, R12, E000
baby clothes: B93, B95, B97
baby blanket: E50, E51, E53
boy/girl hair: E33, E35, E29
boy clothes: R24, R29, R89, BG72, BG75, BG78, E33, E35, E29, C2
girl clothes: R21, R22, R24, BG72, BG75, BG78
presents: YG93, YG95, YG97, E50, E51, E53, E55, R29, R21, R22
shadows/ground: W1, W3, W5
The sentiment I used is from Whimsy Stamps' Birthday Letter Seals stamp set. I love that sentiment.
Okay, that's it for me today. Hope you're having a great day and thanks so much for stopping by and for the sweet comments you leave me. They always make my day!
