Passion for ProMarkers - week 106 challenge
This is my card for this week's Passion for ProMarkers blog challenge. The theme of this week's challenge is 'babies'.
The stamp I used is Stamping Bella - Christy Croll: Pasty Pixie. I chose to use this stamp as I thought it would make a change from the usual baby images. Also I bought this stamp at Oyster Stamps shop which is near me. I bought it a couple of weeks ago when I visited there with my aunts and also my little daughter baby Megan (photo below. It was her first visit to a craft shop! I'm getting her into craft early. So it my babies first craft shop visit stamp too, so reason two.
I begun by stamp the image with a black Memento ink pads. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I added highlights with diamond and gold Stickles, and gold pen. I cut out the image and frames with Labels 15 Nestabilities dies which I also bought from Oyster Stamps.
I cut a panel of pink spotty paper for the background. The paper is from Back to Basics range by Dovecraft. I punched the edge with my Stampin' Up eyelet punch. I added a strip of white ribbon across the card. I tied a bow with the same ribbon. I added a square panel of white card and onto this I added the image with foam pads.
I added pink buttons to the corners. I punched an oval and scalloped oval with my Stampin' Up punches on these I added an oval greeting by Craftwork Cards. To finish I added white dots around the pink frame and greeting with a Papermania pen.
