Ismaki #28

Wow!!! This one was really a challenge!! You have to follow a sketch for the front and both sides of the inside with the option of any kind of embossing!!! Well, I started this last night and finally got it finished this afternoon!! Don't know where the kids are but.....(LOL) They are getting antsy!!



I was thinking of a card when my images from a swap arrived and instantly knew I wanted to make that baby boy card I have been putting off!! Plus this hanglar stamp image was in there and I just had to color it in!!! (Thanks :) I think that took the longest time!! I went with the rough distressed look (are you surprised?) and wanted to try to color the image the same way!! I think this is the first time I really played with the coloring as I was coloring!! It was cool to do so and learned a few things!! Along with that image I used alot of the stamps from the Grunge Collection from Stempelglede! I also embossed the swirl that reads Baby and I tried to put a moon with stars around it under the peek a boo but it din't show up very well!!
Well I better go wash my inky fingers up and get to the vacuuming!!




Papers: K & Co.
Ink: Distressed inks, twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Melissa Frances Ribbon, MM brads



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
