Papertake Weekly Challenge...
As I am home this week and cannot do much - I have decided to take part in a couple of challenges, mainly to stop the boredom setting in and also as we cannot get out due to the foot of snow that has fallen! More on that tomorrow - The Papertake challenge this week was new beginnings and I decided that as my good friend has recently found out she is expecting a 'blue one' as she put it so I have made an early new baby card to give to her in a few months - that is of course if I have not lost it by then. I have coloured the image of Peter Rabbit using my SU ink pads and a blender pen. This is a technique that I have not used before and I like the effect of how deep the colour is but not the lines that are crested with the blender pen - but that mat just be me to be fair! I have then mounted the image on brilliant blue and bashful blue cardstock. The New Baby sentiment is one that I have had stamped for years and don't even know where it is from... I have used Forever Friends DSP for the background and there is also some craftwork cards card candy included to decorate the right hand side of the card. I also inked the edges of the card with brilliant blue ink and a dauber.
