I did this gift set for my neighbor who is pregnant - a card, jar of soup mix and some oatmeal bath for mama to be! The main image is a lockhart i got from susana's custom art & cards (SCACD) along with the creative inspirations shimmer paints i used to paint it in. i embossed the image first which makes it super easy to paint them in. my NEW item i used is the Martha Stewart microbeads cross the front instead of ribbon - help hide my adhesive too! the baby rattle is from the new arrival cricut cartridge. i finished off the bare corners with some pezabling acrylic squares.
the project satisfied a bunch of challenges which was fun:
Pile It On – clear (two challenges are up right now PLUS a chance to get on the DT – FUN!!)
Sweet Dreamers blog group - sketch (i had done this for studio G but i have had little response on that challenge)
Crafty Creations - glitter & bling – i used loads of super shimmering Creative Ispirations paint!
Paper Play - New Beginnings
Our Creative Corner – Clean & Simple
and my own personal challenge – ways with microbeads! I am doing some microbead tutorials on my blog and this was the first one in the batch!
