Today I'd like to show you a card made with my very first digital stamp. It's called 'Kai in the snow', and was drawn by Mo Manning at http://digitalpenciltoo.com/ . I've been admiring this stamp for ages, but not having any babies around at the moment, couldn't justify buying it. However, my daughter said that her friend might be looking to buy a card for her baby nephew's first Christmas, so I thought it was a good excuse to get it, and give it a try. It was an absolute joy to colour (with Copics, of course!). The background paper is from a free download that I've used before, from http://thecrafttable.blogspot.com/ (thanks again, Martine). However, when I was first printing these papers off, I had a problem with the printer, and for some reason the little centres of the snowflakes came out yellow on this sheet, instead of red!! Still, waste not, want not, as they say!
I mounted Kai on a piece of mirri card, and then framed him with a couple of squares cut out with Nesties, and placed to look like diamonds. The sentiment is computer generated, and cut out with Nesties labels die. To finish off I've added a Nesties snowflake which has been covered with Glamour dust, and topped with a flower spacer, and blue gem. Ribbon from stash.
And the GREAT news is:
My daughter's friend has already ordered not one, but two of this design - one for a boy, and one for a girl (in pink, of course!)
Must away now - Eastenders is on!!
