I have to admit to having baby cards on the brain these days, and when I saw this Rock-a-Bye set from Flourishes, I knew I needed it! The focal image is stamped in Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance ink on watercolor paper and watercolored with some Twinkling H2O's (Buttercup, Pink Cloud, Chiffon Pink, Plum Blossom, Iridescent Violet, and a touch of Bougainvillea). I'll add a close-up image below, but it's tough to capture the shimmer that you can easily see in person. Background paper is Prism Iced Amethyst, and card base is a shimmery white cardstock.
I stamped the "Welcome Sweet One" sentiment on translucent shrink plastic, then cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die. (I usually use a punch on shrink plastic, but my largest circle punch was still a tiny bit too small; the die worked well.) I punched a 1/4" hole for the linen thread, then shrunk the medallion. Afterward, I used a Copic Y17 marker to give the medallion a fain yellow glow around the edge to tie in with the moon theme.
Ribbon is PaperTrey Lavender Moon Satin. I used my Scor-Pal to score a lattice background (tutorial here), and lightly sponged antique Linen distress ink on all edges. It's sweet and simple. Now if I only had some baby-powder scent to spray on it. . .
Thanks for visiting!
