So Glad!

I'm just SO glad that Beate is back to her weekly sketch challenges. I really did miss them, and all her daily inspiration!

So, armed with my fantastic new Hippy Hooray stamps from Gina K and an amazing sketch from Beate I just had to pick through my stash to find the right paper for a baby card and a matching clear paint tin for a client order. Turns out, I had some Crate Paper Baby Bee (honestly my favorite for baby projects) that I didn't remember I still had tucked away ... I got it over at the Paper Pretties Boutique.
The image is stamped with Stazon Timber Brown and then used my Marvy Oval to punch that out, and added a border with my Giga Scalloped Oval. That sweet giraffe is colored in with my Creamy Caramel and Blush Blossom SU Watercolor crayons and then blended with a blender pen. I then added a piece of SU Hodgepodge to tie on a little ribbon.

I'm sure most of you know this, but I'm going to mention it because when I started (um...not that long ago actually) I couldn't figure out how to get my big chunky crayon into those teeny fine spaces. The trick is to color onto the tip of your blender pen and then apply the color to the image that way.

The scalloped border down the left hand side was made with the help of my handy slit punch. I know there are tutorials out there as to how this is done, but if you're not familiar, let me know and I can show you how its done another day.
