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.
