Moon Baby Love

Happy Friday, y'all!  I had a bit of an unplanned vacation this week--after hosting book club on Monday I was feeling a little punky for a couple of days and didn't get down to my craft room at all this week until yesterday afternoon.  But I finally made a card!

This week's challenge at Global Design Project is to CASE the Designer, Brian King:

Brian is king of the layers, so I picked a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and added lots and lots of mats and layers:

I used the same patterned paper on my card as Brian did, and I added a heart accent too.  The images on the baby panel are all stamped with Early Espresso + Versamark, then embossed with clear powder so I could color them without the ink running.  I used a variety of methods to color it in; old Blendabilities for the baby's skin, Aquapainter and ink pad lids for the baby's hair, umbrella, and onesie, blender pen for shadows on the baby's onesie, watercolor pencils for the stars, and finally I sponged a light layer of Soft Sky ink over the panel.

This is a bit of a spite cousin sent us an Amazon gift card for the baby, and she wrote a note that NO ONE makes their own thank you cards and I should just send her a message on Facebook when I get it.  So of course I'm like YEAH HUH PEOPLE MAKE CARDS LOOK AT THIS I MADE YOU A CARD.  I even still had one of the baby thank you cards I made months ago that I could have sent, but nope, I made one special.  (It says thank you on the inside.)

Well, I've got ten minutes before kiddo and I head out the door to the gym.  Cheers, y'all!

Cute Baby Ryan! Sorry you haven't been feeling so great. Your dad seems to have gotten it, too. I had a touch yesterday but feel fine today. I have lots on my plate, so I can't afford to get sick.

Great card, Chris. Love you!

Christy - this is ABSOLUTELY adorable! I love the little baby with these papers - such a sweet pairing. Thank you so much for playing along with my CASE the Designer challenge at GDP – I’m honored.
