I haven't used Baby Button Bits in a while and I thought that this flower image would work perfectly with the papers. I stamped it in Smokey Shadow ink rather than black to give it a softer look. I really like how it turned out. I colored it with a combination of Copic and Prismacolor markers. I did a bit of stitching, added some scallops detailed with "Liquid Pearls". I have had the "Liquid Pearls" for years, but haven't used it much because I don't like how the dollops come out slightly pointy. If anyone has a trick to get them to be rounder, I would love to hear it! Thanks in advance!
I am not thrilled with the buttons on the side, but nothing else seemed to be working. All in all I think it is a sweet little baby card. I think Jen's sketch is fabulous and I hope you all get a chance to play. I actually did some stamping this week, but never got anything uploaded. I will get them uploaded soon!
Tomorrow is my birthday, but I am not exactly looking forward to it since I am turning a really depressing age. That particular number just seems really old for some reason. The number after that number doesn't seem as old. Isn't that funny? So maybe I will enjoy next year's birthday a little more! LOL!
You won't want to miss the other gal's creations!
