A Star is born Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #74 Mid Inspiration)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #74 - Baby.

We have two sponsors for this challenge: All Dressed Up Stamps and Make it Crafty, so there will be double prizes! :o)

For this challenge I made CAS (clean and simple), Monochrome, A Star is born Card, using our sponsor's All Dressed Up Stamps adorable digital image A star is born.

This card is the second card I'll be sending to my friend after she gave birth to a sweet baby boy. First card never arrived to her, neither returned to me. Stork flew somewhere... I hope this one will arrive to whom is meant this time. :o)

How I made this card...

Using Paint program, I cut an image on two parts: bear and sentiment. Then I inserted them both in MS Word document and created layout. I printed it out on a white watercolor paper and left it dry for an hour. I use inkjet printer and always leave image "drying" after printing to prevent ink smearing when coloring. :o)

I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I glued the panel on a white cardstock card base.

At the end, using white pen, I added some highlights on the image, and my card was finished. :o)

Dimensions: 95 mm x 126 m(3 3/4" x 5")

  • All Dressed Up 'A star is born' digital image
