Baby Boy for Paper Craft Crew

Well its another warm Wednesday in Melbourne - I'm sure it can't last much longer but will enjoy the warmth while we can :-) And so it is time for a new sketch at the Paper Craft Crew.

There are lots of elements to the sketch this week and I think I used most of them :-)

Originally I had the idea of the T-shirts hanging on a washing line in front of a fence….so I modified that a little here. The fence was in fact quite labour intensive(pun intended LOL!) - the Hardwood stamp was stamped twice onto two sheets of card as on the stamp, the fence would've been on its's side. I then cut the planks out individually and sponged the edges before adding to a piece of Smoky Slate card leaving a little Slate showing between each plank.

The pretty little T-shirt wheel was inked up in Island Indigo ink and then I coloured in using a Blender pen and some Pool Party ink - and a Real Red marker for the little heart. After cutting out is layered onto the Oval after adding some Gorgeous Grunge.

I cut a banner using the beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP from Saleabration and layered onto some more Pool Party card stock. And used the greeting from A Dozen Thoughts for the "announcement." And  a few little blue sequins to add to the celebratory theme.
