Baby Time or Stipes revisited....


Today I share Babycarriageabella, an adorable expectant mother image from Stamping Bella. I often make cards on request and this is one of them. I think it's a little too stipe crazy actually. You now get to learn that I had intended it for last weeks Bellariffic Friday stripe challenge but wasn't in love with it. I also often make two cards for Friday's challenge because things didn't turn out quite like my vision. See, it isn't always smooth sailing in the Cath Craftdom.

Boy or girl we do not know so I used pink and blue, hence the extra stripes. Some things never change though, I started wtih Bella's Bestest paper and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I colored with a combination of prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol and copics. To spice things up, I added lots of glitter adhered with a Quickie Glue pen.

The sentiment is also by Stamping Bella. I handmade a tag to place under the sheer blue ribbon bow. A few blue metal brads are the final touch.

I'm hunkering down today. They are predicting our first Northeaster with 6-12 inches of snow for the mountain region. Great! Perfect inspiration for next weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and see ya again soon!

So pretty Cath and not too many stripes at all! It's just lovely! Yikes about your weather forecast - I agree....no snow yet, except on next weeks card! :) Stay warm.

Hey Cath, great card. I don't think there are too many stripes - the image overrides it. Love your coloring, especially that black dress and those polka dots!
Keep warm!
