Baby You're a Star!
I meant to blog this last week when I blogged it for Happy Daze but I had a funny old week, what with my unplanned trip back to France for a funeral, and I didn't think of it. I made this card for a friend who has had a baby boy. Now I know you will be too polite to ask, but Yes, she is much younger than I am, by about two decades, so it is not some tabloid heading geriatric shock birth! I don't have many baby stamps but this adorably cynical-looking plump baby from the Picture Star plate from Artistic Outpost suits my love of things that are quirky and not overly cute. I used some gorgeous paper kindly gifted to me by Petra and simply stamped all the stamps in the set in various co-ordinating shades of distress ink, then coloured him in with the same. It is so lovely and easy to grab a damp brush and add a little colour with distress inks.
I am entering this for the Artistic Outpost February Referral Programme for which Anything Goes. You can buy their stamps from them here if you are in the US, or from Happy Daze in you are in the UK.
