All of us on the Design Team made cards for Shery that we wanted to share with you all (and Shery) as they make their way to her from around the world. We are so happy for her and her family and can't wait to see photos of their little bundle.
I'll be honest, for some reason I've always become mentally blocked when making baby cards. Maybe I never had the right stamps/dies etc. But when I knew Shery's baby had made her arrival, I knew exactly what I wanted to create:
After stamping the monkey image in black (as well as the skirt and flower) on some white CS, I used my Zig Real Colour markers to colour her in, using a wet brush to soften the colours. I only have one brown Zig marker, so I coloured the whole monkey using the marker to shade and the wet brush to draw out the colour. After it had dried, I went over the outer area again to get a darker brown. It was actually Phoebe's idea to do a second coat 'Thats what I did for my monkey's' she told me and her's looked amazing!!
After die-cutting the flower, skirt and monkey, I glued the pieces together and popped it up on some foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment (also from Waffle Flower 'Congrats') in two tones of pink and glued on a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
I really hope Shery and her family like this card and that it doesn't take too long to get to them from New Zealand!!
I'm going to enter this card in the Happy Little Stampers - September CAS challenge where their theme is:
And will also enter in the Simply Create Too Challenge # 93 where their theme is 'A Special Occasion'. Having a baby definitely counts as a HUGE occasion!!
