Second helpings...

So were yesterday's peaks yummy or what? I had such fun perusing the list of Creative Team members blogs and finding so much creative inspiration for future cards and classes! Pure fun!
Today I am sharing a card I made using 2 new images from the Newly Hatched release. I am not typically a distresser but I am a huge fan of vintage baby memorabilia- baby books, baby cards, florist planters- I love them all. The adorable Plaid Bassinet reminded me of this look. After stamping it in a sepia dye-based ink (Marvy Uchida, I believe) I took a watercolor brush and drew out a bit of the sepia ink before adding some watercolored pink and blue via the direct from ink pad method (Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue dye based inks.) I felt the bassinet looked empty and since I absolutely adored the Star is Born sentiment I decided to use this little Falling Star image was just the thing. You often would find bits of glitter bling (love vintage glitter looks, too) so I added a touch to the little falling star. All paper edges were sponged with the sepia ink and a tiny bow of Cabana Blue stitched grosgrain topped it off. This was so fun to make! Stay tuned for more samples from this sweet collection! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers this weekend! Take care!
