Baby Blue

Good morning crafty friends and followers

It is a dull and dismal start to the day here in Warrington and we have rain the kind of stuff that soaks you right through.  I will be staying in and crafting or should I say getting ahead and as much done as I can over the next 5 days.

Today's card is one I made after making lots of different backgrounds and playing with Imagination masks and sparkle medium, this is brilliant stuff to play with and I intend to get a lot more masks for this fabulous medium.

Recipe and Method

1.  Base card is royal blue pearlescent which I have rounded the corners using X-cut corner punch.
2.  The black card is one of the backing sheets I have been playing with.  This is the Diamond sparkle medium which looks like a pale blue on the black card.
3.  Using my Stork and baby stamp I have inked up with FlitterGlu and then using Mega Flakes added to the image and rubbed of the residue which left this beautiful image.  I then cut the oval using Spellbinder Oval die.  I then took 2 doilies and added them to the back of the topper.  I have coloured the oval using Dew Drop Brilliance Sky Blue.  I stamped it's a boy in Blue and added to the topper.
4.  To finish off I added a pram charm to a piece of ribbon and made a bow and then added a couple of Card Candi to the bottom corners.

Thank you for stopping by Today

Oh Linda I just love the look of this sparkle medium you have stencilled for the background and can see why you want more stencils etc. Your card is a lovely combination of all the different elements and I particularly love the beautiful image of the stock with baby! xx
