Just Add Ink #450 | Just Add Babies

Hello stamping friends! Today for the new Just Add Ink Challenge  - Just Add Ink #450, we are all about babies. Not literally, but projects for babies. Get ready for an overload of cuteness.

My two cards today are for a new baby boy or girl. Using the Stampin' Up! A Little Wild Stamp set and using the Stampin' Up! Water colour pencils for a bit of water colouring. Super cute and super fun

I've incorporated the Stampin' Up! Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper to accent my cards today. Petal Pink spots for a girl card and Pool Party stars for a boy.

I've used the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils to colour my images, no my two cards today but I coloured them a little differently to what you might think. I didn't colour in the image with the pencil first and then move the colour around with the aqua painter. No, I used the aqua painter to pick up the colour off the pencil lead and then coloured the image with the colour that was on the aqua painter. I just find that the colour blends a lot better that way and you don't get any harsh colouring lines. Also by picking the colour up off the pencil you can control how much colour you put down and it's easier to create a softer colour. Basic Gray for the elephant and Early Espresso for the bear.

To accent the coloured DSP I used the cloud stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the white embossing paste for a cute textured background layer and then layered that with some Gray Granite cardstock. The white with the Gray Granite and the little bit of colour is such a gorgeous soft look, perfect for a new baby card.

Accented with the cardstock layers is Silver and Petal Pink Baker's Twine, Silver and Pool Party Baker's Twine and some Iridescent Sequins in the coordinating colours.  All super cute and super gorgeous.
