TRR35...Babies are Heaven Sent

Hello and welcome!


It's Monday and time for another fortnightly challenge over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog!  Lenet has chosen a wonderful baby themed inspiration picture for us all this time and asks that we create a project using COLOURS from the photo AND use a BANNER/PENNANT.

I used PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set to create a little banner with little baby related images, stamped and coloured by hand and suspended from some Ribbon Reel ivory button twine. I stamped the baby-gro/onesie onto some MME patterned paper and added a little duckie which has been coloured with a blue copic marker.


I used ivory small pom-pom trim to edge my embossed/die cut cirle and popped the baby-gro on top using foam adhesive dots. The blue core'dinations cardstock has been embossed and then sanded to created a pretty two tone effect.  I added some beautiful white crochet lace and sky blue gingham ribbon from The Ribbon Reel.  The sentiment banner is created by stamping an image from Waltzingmouse Stamps Bitty Banners and the sentiment again is from PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings.

Don't forget to check out the other Design Team inpirational projects - you have almost two weeks to play.
