Girly Baby Shower

Here's a very quick card I made for a friend's baby shower. I was pressed for time and was able to complete this in about 20 minutes though it needed some extra drying time.


Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Hello Sunshine paper pack by Lawn Fawn.
Ink: Pool Party, Tuxedo Black, Copic markers - YR18, Y00, RV00, Clear Wink of Stella brush marker
Stamps: Plus One by Lawn Fawn
Accessories / Tools: twine from The Twinery, Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue, Hello Sunshine sequins, Glossy Accents, ink blending tool.

The stork and bundle are coated in Wink of Stella to make them sparkle. I glued the sequins on with Glossy Accents. I've recently bought Matte Multi Medium, which, I feel, is much better for the job. If you make a mistake or slip, the matte doesn't show up like Glossy Accents.

5th Birthday

I've entered a challenge for the first time in ages - Lawnscaping Challenge #79. I tried a new technique on this card. Not sure exactly what it's called, I inked around a cloud die cut to make the cloudy background on the card below. I like the result though I feel I need more practise at this technique!

Here's the card:

Ink: Pool Party, Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle in Champagne, Copic markers - YR18, Y08, B00, R29, YG17, G03, B24, B18, E57, 0

Accessories / Tools: Critters from the past Lawn Cuts, Spring Showers Lawn Cuts, Year four Lawn Cuts, Ink blending tool, Grassy border Lawn Cuts, dimensionals, Clear Wink of Stella brush marker, glue tape

Update: My card received an Honorable Gnome award! I feel very honoured! Thanks very much to the Lawnscaping team, I really appreciate it! :)
