Oh! Baby I Tried!

Well this was quite hard! Today's Daring Cardmakers challenge is here.
I got Andrew to pick my items - he is definitely not crafty - well not in the sense we mean - he, he!!
I was gentle on myself and only gave him 10 options in a cup and he was allowed to pick 4.

He picked:
  • Colorbox Petal Point Fluid Chalks.
  • Design Runner
  • Rubber Stamps
  • Stickers

Well I was dreading the rubber stamps (why did I include them!!), as my personal collection is quite limited. I decided on a baby theme, mainly because I have rubber stamps in that theme!
I used SeeD's clear baby stamps - I haven't even got an acrylic block in my stash so had to use the plastic case! I arranged the "washing line", baby bottle and small nappy pin on the lid, inked with a black petal point and stamped onto an ivory pearlescent card blank.
I then spent what seemed to be ages, trying to colour in the images with the point of the petal point inks - don't look too closely or you will see the overspill!!
My Design Runner then came to the fore, using the "Oh! Baby" text and the large nappy pin images from the Starter Disc.
The card was finished off using butterfly stickers, I think from Papermania.

Quite hard and using some new techniques - so thank you Daring Cardmakers.
Speak to you soon!

Cute card, love that big safetly pin stamp. and very clever using a plastic box instead of an acrylic block... Well done on being so quick with the dare too..

Kathy said...

wow you really did have a tricky barch there!
I think you've done really well - colouring in with the tip of an inkpad - well that's above and beyond the call of duty so a gold star to you!

I'm so impressed with the way you just used what was pulled out - you have done a great job

Paula said...

You did very well to create something with what you had.
Mine was scary too!

Flower said...

Oh, I'd have gladly traded you rubber stamps for anything! I had to go without, which was just as hard for me! hehehe I think you did a great job!!

You did a fab job. I used to use a plastic cd case for my stamps before I got my acrylic blocks. :D
