Sweet Little One

This week's HM Challenge was a sketch. I really liked this one, and I found that with the layout of the card given to me, I can work pretty fast. I put it all together and colored the image last. My niece is expecting her first baby in a few weeks, so I made this for her precious new son. My yellows (including ribbon) are PTI's Lemon Tart and my blue's are SU's Brilliant Blue. I sponged my scalloped Nestie with blue and then used my circle punch to place blue circles along the left edge before adding my silver half-balls. The sentiment is from SU's "By Ones and By Twos". I attached my Prima flowers with my new flower brads from SU! Be sure to check out the other cute cards at the HM Challenge this week. Thanks for stopping by.
(Note: I realized my picture is making the colors look washed out. The lemon colors are bright and warm, but not overpowering. I've got my new light box, but I think I still need additional light to get the true colors to show. If anyone wants to tutor me, feel free. :) )

Christmas Workshop

This is my latest card for the workshop I have been asked to do for our ladies at my church. It's fairly simple but will teach them to use markers on the stamps and to use a reverse-mask technique as I did for the snowglobe and a mask technique for the presents. I'll post the others over the next few days. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're having a good week.
