Baby Elements




I struggle with baby cards,
 
 probably because I lean toward graphic and geometric designs.
 
This baby card, however, was fun for me.
 



stamps: Papertrey Ink Bitty Baby Blessings

Watch her tutorial...she's so efficient!  

Love the way she attacked it head on with strips of one inch tall.

Um, I probably would've gone the long route...working on 

each. and. every. individual. square....

and cried.

 
I did the smoosh thing with watercolor paper, Summer Sunrise ink and a water mister.

The stamp set (last call at Papertrey Ink now) is one of the few baby collections I have.

Since there are mini duplicates of the images...I used the larger ones for monotone contrast.

The sentiments in this set are perfect for inchies!


I'm also submitting this to the following challenge~talk about timing!
