Just Add Ink #252 - Baby, We've Grown

The challenge this week over at Just Add Ink, Kim has created a fantastic sketch for us.

At the start of the month I became an Aunty again for the 12th time. My husbands brother and his wife welcomed their 5th child into the world, a little boy! So this card is for them!

I haven't had any cuddles yet due to them living interstate but we are catching up with them for a 'Blok' family holiday very soon so there will definitely be lots and lots of cuddles then!

I used the stamp set 'Baby' We've Grown' and stamped it onto watercolour paper with Stazon ink and then picked up the ink from the lid of the ink pad with an aqua painter and coloured the images in.

The sentiment actually said 'Sweet Baby' which is cute but I wanted it to say 'Hello Baby'. Before I stamped the sentiment I covered over the word 'Sweet' with washi tape, inked up the sentiment, removed the washi tape and then stamped the word baby and also coloured that in using an aqua painter.

Come and see what the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have created here, see their take on this awesome sketch and join in the fun!
