Welcome Baby

As you know I am a huge fan of Jane's Doodles and purchased this image over on Squigglefly a while ago and have made a few cards with it.  When I saw the DT use it on Jane's Doodles new blog - I reprinted and got colouring.

It is such a fun image to colour/paper piece etc.  I had to make a baby boy card and personalised it be running the patterned paper through the printer before running it through my Big Shot and machine stitching.

I was going to add ribbon/buttons etc. but decided to let the image and wonderful pp colours do the work.  So in the end I just layered it on a white watercolour card blank.  I added Ranger black enamel on the eyes after colouring for added dimension.  I added layers of torn paper including kraft into the card and matted/layered on kraft which I cut by hand.

Squigglefly - Kraftastic

This card was similar but I didn't machine stitch and added an SRM sentiment sticker - keeping it in my stash as I think it could be used for a boy or girl.

Thanks so much for peeking.  Hope you have a wonderful day.

Oh wow Dee these are gorgeous, so cute and beautifully coloured.
It was a good job I was stitting down when you asked about the clouds, I never thought I'd see the day you asked about a Magnolia product ha ha ha. Here's the link hun, I checked Cuddly Buddly as it's close to home for you but they don't stock them
