I've had a lovely week this week. It's been warm and that has meant cups of tea in the garden and the school holidays has meant time to have cups of tea in the garden :) The deal I made with the kids was that I'll take them out for activities in the morning and the afternoon we'd be at home and they'd have to occupy themselves. What are you going to be doing Mum? they asked. Stamp was my answer!! Cause I'm on holiday too - lol!
This week we have a very useful challenge at Just Add Ink - it's Just add Baby. One of the girls on the JAI DT is expecting her first bub very soon (how exciting!!) and to celebrate we decided a baby challenge was the perfect thing :) So please join us and show us your baby projects.
Since we don't know if bub is going to be a boy or girl I made one of each.
Here's the girl version
And the boy version
As you can see they both follow the same plan but I just changed up the colours and decorative details on each. The concept started with knowing I wanted to do an emboss resist effect with the big scale sentiment. I've been pulling out a watercolour paper a bit recently and it's been fun to combine it with reinkers and seeing how it all turns out! I carried the themes through to the inside using the new SU! stencils to created the sponged spotty/starry patterns.
Do check out the rest of the JAI DT for lots of baby inspiration! Hope you can join us.
