Stepping away from the sketch soon...

In the past two days, I have showed you two very different versions of the sketch that is the current challenge over at Just Add Ink.

In case you missed them, you can see them -->here<-- and -->here<--.

Here is the third and final (for now!) card that I made using the sketch as a guide.  It's another of the four baby girl cards I'm currently in need of to send to people I know who have recently been blessed with precious little angels...



To achieve the slightly blurry watercoloured look that you can see in the above close up, I first inked up the stamps (using Markers in the case of the flower), stamped them onto the Naturals Ivory cardstock, then took to the images lightly with an Aquapainter.  It took the defined edges off the images a bit and was exactly the softened look I was hoping for.

The little dotted border was added in as a bit of an afterthought, as I wanted to define the circle a bit more.  I drew the lines and dots free-hand with my Regal Rose Marker, then went over them with the Aquapainter as well.

The stamp set is my current absolute favourite, which is a large statement, I will admit!  It's called For Everything, and you can find it in the Summer Mini catalogue until the end of March!

I'll show you another baby project using this stamp set tomorrow, so be sure to tune in for that!
