Taylored Expressions Challenge #93!

Happy Friday everybody! It is sketch challenge time again...we took a little holiday last week but here we are again....hope you play along!
We have had an exciting week in our family! My sister had a baby....this is one of the best occasions to create a card! These fabulous vintage images are from the "baby dear" set in the Rummage Bin at CHF. Did you know that Julia created this set? A definite "must have" for your stamp collection.
The images are colored with can tell that I reach for my light markers A LOT...this is why...they pair up beautifully with the soft vintage paper from Melissa Frances.
I had to chuckle a little as I added in the "oh, boy" sentiment in the last image....this particular "little" baby tipped the scales at a whopping 9lbs11oz!

Here is a close shot of the dimension on this card. I covered each one of my images with a circle fragment. I love how it makes my embellishment look like I bought them this way...but actually made them.
I know my sis looks at my blog so she gets to see this card.
Now the really fun part.... to try to find the perfect little gift to go with my card....

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow

Have a fabulous weekend! It's my babys' birthday this weekend...she turns 14!

Liette alias Pixelle said...

hello Sherrie!! it is so nice!!! I have a question, can i use airbrush with copic on fragment or acetate if I want to make this card on transparency....???
thanks a lot!!!

Sherrie said...

Denise....I'm home with Daniel today (he is sick) so I'm not sure when I will get away to come and visit...hopefully soon!

Liette...Yes, the airbrush system is perfect for those tough to color surfaces. Perfect for acrylics and acetate...just give it a little bit to dry before touching it (ask me how I know...)
