Your Next Stamp May GDT - May Release Special Post

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my sixth guest spot on the Your Next Stamp Blog and I'm sharing a card made with another stamp set from a new May Release (find all YNS new products here). :o)

You can find cards I made using other YNS May Release products here and here. :o)

For my today's card I used a super cute stork and baby image and lovely sentiment (adorable font ) from 'Baby Blessings' stamp set. Super cuteness overload!!! LOVE it!!! 

And here is my card: Welcome Little One Card. :o)

I made this card for my cousin's son, Luka. I'm visiting my cousin tomorrow, to meet her adorable baby boy who came to this World on April 1st.  :o)

How I made my card...

I ink blended a white cardstock panel with various blue tone Distress Inks. When I was satisfied with the color, I trimmed the panel a bit, because I didn't like edges. I stamped the image and the sentiment directly on the panel. I colored the image with a black fine liner.

Then I mixed a white tempera color with some water, splattered the panel and left it dry on air.

While the panel was drying, I stamped the image on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I messed up stork's legs, so I stamped another image and watercolored only stork's legs.

After drying, I fussy cut images (parts I needed) and traced edges with a black marker.

I glued the panel on a white side folded card base. Then I glued fussy cut image pieces (2) on the panel, over the black colored image, and my card was finished. :o)
