Hello! Happy Tuesday! Yay for short work weeks! Friday being Good Friday and Monday being Easter Monday makes for a lovely long weekend of crafting hopefully:)
I decided that this week I'm going to participate in new blog challenges I haven't before, one's I've seen and like but haven't participated in. I hope I can stick to this plan as I still haven't finished those wedding invitations I mentioned in my last post, ugh.
Today I am playing along with the "Less is More" challenge blog. This is a challenge blog for clean and simple card designs which I adore so I had to start playing along.
This weeks challenge is to combine any three previous challenges into one creation. I have used week 59-Masking, week 68-Baby or child, week 215-Include an animal.
I decided to make some baby cards because my nursing partner at work is expecting, and does not know what she is having yet so I just made a boy and girl version, I'm sure I will be able to use the other eventually.
I did a lot of masking on these cards as I wanted to keep them one layer(minus the gems & pearls). I started with 120lb card stock from SSS. I stamped my little scene from the Nursery Deco stamp set from Mama Elephant on both the card stock and some scrap paper so I can create masks for each image. I colored my images in using Copic markers and at this point covered them with my mask to protect the coloring and then blended some color onto the background (It's not very noticeable on the boy card but its a light blue color). I removed my masks, stamped my sentiments, adhered this panel onto a card base and added some cute pearls.

This card was done the same way of course just using some sweet girly colors instead and some gems:)
