New Baby Card
Our neighbours have recently had a new arrival to their family, so I made this card for them.
A couple of days ago, I was experimenting printing backgrounds using stencils. For this background I have used a Funky Fossil stencil called "Petal Burst".
This background is actually the result of me cleaning off the stencil with a wet wipe. As I wiped, the colour filled the gaps in the stencil on to the card below. It was too good to throw away, so I kept it for a future project.
I cut the image down to size so that it was square. Using Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" shade of ink, I stamped the baby image, which is part of the Visible Image stamp set called "Bloom and Grow".
I stamped the Papertrey Ink sentiment (part of the "Signature Greetings" set) in the same ink. Then mounted the card on to some matching cardstock.
I have entered this card into the June 2019 "A Place to Start" stencil challenge.
