Yet another Baby Girl is born! :o)

Hello Everyone,

Hope you're all keeping well. The weekend is just around the corner! AND I can see sunshine through the window again today, after a few really gloomy days - that's a big reason to celebrate! 

Today I am sharing with you a baby girl card I made for a friend of mine who recently had a little bundle of joy. I can't wait to send it to her. Of course, what other stamp to use if not the Lili of the Valley Ballon Basket? :o) I have so many baby related stamps, yet in the end I most often seem to be going back to this one... I guess it must be love! 

For a change from my usual marker colouring of images, I decided to give watercolouring with Distress Inks a go. I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink and quickly sprinkled it with some clear embossing powder - the embossing really helps with watercolouring! 

I am quite pleased with the result, especially with the way the sky looks. You can't really see it in the pictures, but the sky is quite sparkly thanks to Perfect Pearls mixed in the water. I also love the unevenness of it - exactly how I wanted it! And the look was quite easy to achieve when watercolouring. 

I kept the card design quite simple - partially because it has to be mailed, and partially because I followed a LOTV challenge sketch. 

I hope you like it!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
LOTV facebook challenge - Sketch
SSS Monday Challenge - Emboss it
Seven Hills Crafts - Embossing
A Gem of a challenge - Favourite colour combo (pink and aqua/teal)

Have a great day,
