ETA: This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square. I meant to put that but forgot! :)
What took me so long to play with Bella Baby? OMG! I've had her for a while and this is the first time she's seen ink. What was I thinking?? OMG. She is soooo much fun.
I laughed this morning when I saw Jen's sample for her Sketch for You to Try this week...cause she made a baby card too!! And I'm guilty as charged...no one to give this to. This sketch is definitely one I'll do again, since it's perfect for adding embellishments, like my beloved BAUBLES!! Man I love those things.
Anyway, I watercolored Baby with reinkers and my waterbrush. I used a teeny tiny brush for the rug...dude that was hard! I love this color combo though. I had intended to use Celery instead of Banana, but the ducky needed some yellow, don't you think? You can't really tell in the photo, but the tub is covered with Diamond Glaze, and the bubbles are hilighted with Diamond Stickles for some sparkle. It's such a fun look in real life!
The sentiment is from the Verve Visual set Family Phrases, which I love. These are perfect little sentiments to not overpower your main image, and they're so unique and original. You know I love a good original sentiment...which you'll see more of in the days and weeks to come! *wink*
The paper piercing and Baubles added just the right touch...and of course my favorite May Arts ribbon EVER, which I bought a roll of when Recollections announced they were closing. I can't live without it. It's so sparkly, and it matches Groovy Guava perfectly!!
Anyway, sorry I gushed today, I just love this card and it incorporates some of my very favorite things in my stamp room. I hope you like it!!
Make sure you check out Jen's, Carole's, and Susan's blog for their take on this sketch!
