The Artful Stampers – Team Challenge Blog Hop 18 – Sketch Challenge

Thanks for popping by to have a look at my version of The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Team Sketch Challenge! You may have come from Jane’s blog!

This week I have actually combined two team challenges in one … the Sketch from The Artful Stampers Blog Hop, and the theme of Pink Spots from The Midnight Inklings!

Here is the sketch that we were given to work with … Artful Stampers Challenge 18

So where did I go from here?  Well, to incorporate the Pink Spots theme, I decided to make a baby girl card as I know a lot of people who are pregnant at the moment, and this way I’ll have a card ready in case one of them has a girl.

Starting with Whisper White Cardstock for the base, I decided to stick with just a few colours – Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride & Smoky Slate.

I used the spots mask from the Dots & Stripes Decorative Masks, sponge dauber and Pink Pirouette ink pad to create the spotty background.  The masks are a great way to create a simple but effective background in any colour you require.

The sentiment comes from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and the circles and banner were made using the Banner & Circle Framelits.

The centre of the banner was created using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and to make the pram from the Something for Baby Stamp Set stand out a little more, I heat embossed it using the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and used the Baby’s First Framelits to cut it out.  You can see this a little clearer in the next photo.
