Hello Baby Girl | ft. Clearly Besotted "Wild Thing"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
I was going through old files just cleaning out old stuff that will never make it here, and came across this one. I had made an entire set of these a couple years back and somehow it never ended up being posted. So today I'm going to share this super sweet baby card - also the closest I have have ever come to "mixed media".
To begin, I stamped the giraffe from Clearly Besotted's "Wild Thing" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured her in with Copic markers. I fussy cut her out and popped her up on some foam tape and set her aside.
To create the background, I mixed some Victorian Velvet Distress ink with some homemade embossing paste (DIY post coming soon), using a palette knife to work the paste through a dotted stencil on the left side of my panel.
Once that was completely dry, I adhered the scripty hello from Lawn Fawn and stamped the "baby" from Lawn Fawn's "Critters Down Under" set with Memento Ink.
I had some leafy die cuts from another project and arranged them over the dry embossing paste. Finally I mounted my giraffe over top.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
