The other week we had a Flowers Galore challenge...this week I feel like there's a babies galore challenge happening in my house lol!! There have been so many babies arriving around me lately, I can hardly keep up :)
A lovely work friend gave birth to beautiful twin boys last week so I wanted to make them a card each to go with their presents. I like to give a card for each baby so that they can keep them when they get older...bit hard to share a twin card, short of ripping it in half :) And I like to make them a little different to each other but still sort of the same!
I've been wanting to join in with one of Makeesha's Inkspirations challenges for ages but haven't managed, so when I saw sketch #25 for the challenge this week I decided to use it for the baby cards. Unfortunately the challenge closed at midnight LAST night...I thought it was Friday night it closed...so I'm too late :( Oh well...maybe next time I'll manage to get the timing right!
The image I used for the cards is Moon Baby from *Wink *Wink Ink. They were printed onto Xpress Graphx blending card and coloured with Copics. The ribbon and star have been highlighted with clear glitter pen. The background DPs and stripe strips were printed from digi paper kits. The welcome panels are computer generated. The 5 1/2" card bases are made from Grant Archival textured CS. All other CS is SU & CM. Sponging around the image is done with SU Baby Blue ink.
One of the "babies" :)
Now I need to get on and make 2 baby girl cards and I'm done for a few weeks until the next one arrives :)
