Baby Boy & Big Ribbons

It's a sketch this week on the Daisy and Dandelion challenge blog:

And because of the birthing explosion amongst my friends, work colleagues and nursery staff due to commence in the next month, I need to get organised for all the arrivals!

The stamped image was generously given to me by Kath which I've used watercolour paints and pencils to colour in (this image and others were coloured in whilst the boys were at a play centre party. Somehow I managed to concentrate with millions of kids running around screaming.... And I was not going to waste the 2 hours I had either!)

The backing paper, I'm not sure where it came from but I found it as a printed A4 sheet in my stash and I have a feeling I've had it for a long time! I've doodled around the edge of the image and the backing paper, just for a bit of closure as it seemed to wander off the edges somehow. The image has also been lightly chalked too as it was a little stark and I didn't have any blue chalk

The ribbon is from my stash (I have a roll also in baby pink!) and the card candy is from Craftwork Cards.

  • Backing paper: Don't know - from my stash
