Thanks for coming to see our Wonderful Wednesday inspiration from Kim Robertson…
Wow hasn’t it turned cold and icy these last few days, Wrap up warm everyone and be ultra careful walking on ice wont you all.
Today is my day for Visible Image of course and I’ve used one of the new Express yourself sentiments, with the baby set and the ink splats.
Take a look…
I really fancied making a baby card and this set is just perfect and the sentiment fits perfectly I think.
I started with the Baby stamp set and some perfect medium and embossed both the hands in clear powder.
As you can see in the picture here , this shows the hands here. I also stamped out the sentiment with Black Archival ink.
I took Spun sugar distress ink and worked it in from the edges and I also added Vintage photo on the very edges. I took the little feet and inked up with the same spun sugar for a tone on tone colour and added it just to the top left of the picture.
Next I took a larger piece of white card and inked the edges the same as the last piece with the same two colours of distress then I took three colours spun sugar, tattered rose and Victorian velvet I think its called and my Ink splats stamps and added randomly to the right and bottom left corners.
I mounted both the stamped sections onto red card and wrapped the bottom with a sheer organza ribbon and gave it a double red mat also.
Here is a close up of the corners together , You can see I added some finishing touches, with the white pen Highlights the pearl hearts and ribbon bow.
I added this little bow with a small decorative safety pin and another pearl heart to dress it.
I added some pink stickles in tiny dots in two of the corners and also a small dot on the pearls for a little sparkle.
and again here is the full image all finished, I think the backing turned out well and compliments the card perfectly.
I had a lovely time creating this one as it is in colours I don’t automatically reach for.
I hope you like it and will try to recreate it with your stamps and similar items if you have them.
Thank you Kim, an absolutely beautiful card xx
Come back tomorrow for more fabulous inspiration!
