Mojo Monday sketch # 129 & Creative Cottage 1st challenge
Firstly I would like to congratulate the creative cottage on their very 1st challenge which is to incorporate "new" into a card design. This could have been new products, new job, new home the possibillities are endless - I went for new baby !
I wasn't so sure of the mojo sketch to begin with and it took alot of shuffling the card elements about and adding more layers but I am thrilled with the result - just goes to show what you can achieve when you leave your comfort zone and push yourself that little bit harder.
I knew I wanted to use some of my "new" papers from Papermania's Honey and hugs range they are just so cute - perfect for spring and baby cards. This image is just 1 of 4 from a 6 x 6 page so this set could really stretch with some thrifty cropping !
So all 3 patterned papers are from this set and the pearlescent paper is from my craft stash.
I embossed the lower pink panel with a paisley cuttlebug folder and my bigshot, I also used my bigshot to diecut a swirl (Sizzix decorative swirl #3) which I positioned under some flowers secured with a gorgeous brad (not sure what range this came from - sorry).
Under the flowers I have added a double bow (make a bow with a longer length of ribbon then loop the ends to make another bow - almost rosette style) I made the bow with a very light pink sheer organza so it would be delicate and not detract from that super cute lamb.
I added a sentiment from a K & Co kit I've had ages and ages and finally dotted some fruit punch stickles on the lambs cheeks - had to stop myself from adding more glitter to his coat - enough is enough !
Inside it says "It's a girl" - I have a friend who is pregnant so I am now hoping she has a girl !!
Well that's it - thanks for looking and for all your comments - still on the look out for some good beginners copic tutorials if anyone knows of any.
