Happy Monday friends! Today I have a sweet card using Art Impressions Baby Girl and Baby Boy sets. Be sure to keep reading to find out how I fixed two pretty big oopsies! I decided to make a slimline card using the clothes on the line stamps from both sets to make a card to welcome twins!
I created a slimline card base by cutting some Neenah Solar White to 7" x 8-½" and scoring at 3-½". I positioned both clothesline stamps and stamped them with Copic safe ink. Next I stenciled the clouds with Distress Inks. I really didn't want to create masks for all of the little clothes, so I just tried to go lightly with the ink blending brush around them. I have a tiny blending brush that helped with that too. I knew my coloring would cover any of the clouds I might get on the clothes.
I colored the clothes with the Copic markers listed below. Then I stamped the sentiments Girl and Boy. I had thought to color them like translucent balloons, but let me tell you, that was a HUGE fail! Haha! So I re-stamped them onto scrap paper that I Copic colored in ombre shades of pink and blue. I fussy cut them out then went around the edges with a Memento Tuxedo Black pen to give them a finished look. Then I adhered them over my "bad" balloons! I rummaged through my stamp stash to find the ampersand and "It's a" sentiments.
Another BIG goof happened right after I finished coloring the little clothes. I got up to do something else and when I came back I saw the card sitting ON TOP OF the open Distress Ink pad!! Gah! A big blue blob had seeped through to the front! Hence, the birds. As it turns out, I love having the birds holding the clotheslines! Happy accident!
To finish it all off, I used a white gel pen to add doodles to the clothes and highlights on the sentiments.
I hope you've enjoyed my card today and that I've shown you that most times, those oopsies can be fixed!! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have lots of crafty time this week and that you and yours are well and healthy!
