Love Bug Baby

So hello everyone I hope you are all fine and dandy. Things here are OK a little busy but we can’t complain about that can we (well we can and do but you know what I mean) I have another card for you today I made these that I showing now (one is a day or so you know I like to tease you) last week but as the birthday wasn’t until today and I know they do see some of my posts I thought it best not to post until the day has arrived. So here it is Now do you remember I promised a different sized card. Well as promised (did you ever doubt it) here it is.

The card is 6½x7½ (told you it was different)I really do love making this size card and used to do them most of the time a while back may have to start to do more.

Anyhoo the LO is a sketch from PTW and the papers are from Pixel Scrapper, of course they have been distressed and inked with picked raspberry and spun sugar then matted onto white card which has also been distressed. The sentiment was done in the same way also.

The image is baby fairy bug from Mo Manning. As soon as I was asked to make this card I decided I was using this image it’s just so darn cute and a dream to colour, Which I did with my promarkers and prisma pencils (for more detailing).I am starting to fall back in love with my Promarkers again although I have to say my pencils are still in the lead.

Once coloured I cut out a mask for the image then with stencil brushes created the background using distress inks, I really enjoy this technique you think you have put wayyyyy to much on because of the blank mask but once you take that away and see the colour underneath you see there is nothing to worry about. Then Die cut the image out using spellbinder labels. Not forgetting to add some glitter to her wings.

To embellish the card I made a large fussy bow in raspberry pink organza ribbon then I made my pearl teardrop centre piece using a strip of tulle gathered and sewn to make the ruffle I glued in place then added a few decorative pins.

Finally the insert I used the same papers from the front to tie it together then I brought the image through fading it into the background and flipping it for each side so they were back to back. Then it was trying to find a verse that I thought was suitable for a 1st birthday card from your baby girl and this one seemed so sweet so I went with it. It’s short but I think it has the aawwwww factor.

And so there you have my card for today I hope you like it and I will see you very soon with the other one for the same person and a tutorial whoop whoop

I will leave you with a list of challenges and another look at the beautiful image.


Happy crafting

Jacki, this is a beautiful card. Your colouring is gorgeous and I love the pretty layers you have added. I am very taken with how you masked the image and used distress inks as background and shading - it looks wonderful.
