A Baby is a Blessing ~ Friday Sketchers Week#56

Jeanette Week #56

Hi Everyone! This week, it is my turn to host the Friday Sketchers Challenge. That means that I created the sketch for everyone to follow! I really hope you all like it. I much prefer to follow sketches rather than create them, but I think this one is fun as it is really open to interpretation. Please have a look at the FS blog and you will see how my fellow DT all did different and amazing things with the sketch!Sketch Week # 56

As soon as I received my Whiff of Joy DT kit on Monday, I knew that I was going to use this image for today’s card. Elisabeth has captured the tenderness and incredible love that you feel when you hold your little baby in your arms. It just reminds me of my boys when they were this little. I remember how it was to hold them, content from a feeding and so warm and soft and their incredible sweet “baby” smell. Sigh! They are getting so big now. The “baby” will turn 4 next month.

I have added Shimmerz to Willow’s dress and a tiny bit of fun flock to the little one’s sleeper. The flowers were originally white, but I airbrushed them with my copic system to match the cardstock. I have discovered that BG72 is very good match to SU’s Baja Breeze and Parisien Breeze.

  • Stamps: Image and Sentiment both Whiff of Joy’s Mother’s Delight Collection (Release date is June 14th)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Parsien Breeze DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers and Airbrushing
  • Embellies: Flowers from ATS, K&CO Adhesive Pearls, Shimmerz in Ocean Breeze, Fun Flock in Cotton Ball White, May Arts Ribbon

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have the chance to try out my sketch and participate in this week’s Friday Sketchers! I will be back tomorrow with my Sketch Saturday DT card. I have used another of the new WoJ stamps….they are just exquisite!
