Special Addition

Hi Everyone!  It's my turn to post over on the Stampavie blog tonight.  When I was deciding what image to use on my card, I came across this adorable Sent from Above image from illustrator Tina Wenke.  Tina's images are always some of my personal favorite images from Stampavie.  I just love coloring them and creating cards with them.  I love creating baby cards, too.  I think they are my favorite type of cards to create (along with Christmas cards) and I have a hard time resisting adorable baby images like this one.

I colored the image with markers and used some patterned papers from My Mind’s Eye’s Stella and Rose paper pad. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps'  Welcome Baby Sentiments set.  I finished the card off with some wooden buttoms and twine.  After masking the clouds, I used my air compressor to spray the sky with a BG52 copic marker while the image was still in the nestability die.

If you're looking for a store that stocks many of the Stampavie images, Lacey carries many of them in her store, Stamp and Create.  She even has the adorable baby image I used on this card (under the Tina Wenke section).

Have a great day!
