My 1st Mo's digi stamp !
So I have been admiring these images for ages but was a little scared to take the plunge - as I haven't mastered my copics quite yet but, after reading this super tutorial, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go.
I am so glad I did - I feel quite proud ! Of course there is always room for improvement but I think this is an admiral 1st try.
I struggled with the background paper as I didn't want anything to detract from my main image. So eventually I settled on this gorg paper I've had in my stash for years with blue sky and clouds. I think it is from a DCWV kit but I'm not so sure. I used the same paper to cover inside too and stamped "Have fun" inside - I thought this would be perfect for my friends son who will be 1 in June.
I added some ribbon and a bow and made a coordinating little ribbon tag which is stuck down under the insert - I do like these little tags and often use up my ends of ribbon putting them on cards.
The image is diecut with my nesties and inked while the die was still in place and the sentiment I stamped twice once with blue ink then over in black to give an almost shadow effect.
I am entering this into the following challenges :
Mo's Digital Challenge - Celebrate babies
Crafty Pad - Over the edge challenge
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Cute People
Crafty Creations Challenges - Want us to use our favourite stamp
Paperplay Challenges - Up in the air
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Celebrations
I would like to say a special thank-you to Carolyn for the fab tutorial it was so clear and simple to follow and without it my copic markers would still be sitting in my bulging craft cupboard x
I do hope you like it as much as I do, thanks for looking x
