Welcome Little One


Again I'm using new stamps from Quietfire Design - 2 of the images from the Welcome Little One set.  

I started with a mop up piece that was laying on my counter.  I'm pretty sure I had mopped up Distress Paint.  On this background I stamped the oval Welcome Little One image with jet black Archival Ink, embossed it with detail clear powder, used a white Sharpie paint pen to color the moons and stars white and add dots around the edge, and sponged Distress Ink salty ocean around the edge.  For the center piece I put Distress paint on my craft sheet and then pulled a scrap of cardstock through it, dried it, stamped the sentiment with jet black Archival, embossed it with detail clear, cut it out with a Spellbinders oval die, again used the Sharpie marker to make dots and color in the heart, distressed the edge and sponged it with Distress Ink.  For the border I cut 2 pieces from white cardstock using the Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs set, painted them white which gave their look a bit more oomph, glued one to the center and then pieced in the ends from the other cutout and finished up with some gems.  


The close up below makes me laugh because there is a reflection of my hand and camera in the large gem.

I just LOVE how crisp the stamping is, even on a mop up paper. I just got invited to a baby shower on Sunday, so thank you for the inspiration! Love the colors!
