I have a grandson on the way, and thought the sketch would be a great way to add to my stash of baby boy cards.
I used the Die-namics Mod Rectangle Stax to cut out my stitched backgrounds and stamped them with MFT background stamps. The images from the MFT You're Rawr-some stamp set were water colored on watercolor paper with Zig Brush pens and the sentiment was stamped in black with MFT sentiment block stamps.
The SCS Ways to Use It Challenge is to use water on your card.
For my watercolor technique, I used mixed media paper and made a wash of Crushed Coral Distress Ink and Peeled Paint for the peonies and leaves. I used some of the watercolored paper for the background on my lace doily.
I'm bringing you a card today made with the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peomy Collection of paper, stamps, and dies.
