Welcome to my latest great nephew

Confession time… I am officially the worst at sending cards.  I am good at making them, but never get to posting them… So this card for my great nephew number three is several months late!  But finally handed over to my niece this past weekend so I can share it! 

Made for my niece, for the birth of her gorgeous son Nathan, who I finally met this weekend, I kept it soft and delicate.

I coloured the image using the spectrum noir pencils, and then using a clarity stencil I added the blue background using the brushes to keep the colour soft.  Cute!

Kept it simple with the matting and layering in all blues, for a special little boy! 

Entering this for the “water” challenge over at Crafty cardmakers blog and the layers challenge at Papertakeweekly blog.

Happy crafting!

  1. Very pretty card – I love this stamp for baby cards. Had a quick walk down your blog , your cards are super, some great brush backgrounds! Look forward to seeing your zentangled elephant!

  2. A really cute card. Your animal ark image is gorgeous and you have coloured it beautifully and the inked circle is a great detail. Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers and more. Sally.x.
