I recently discovered a new challenge blog that also professes their faith called Stampin Sisters In Christ. I've kind of "lurked" on the site for a few weeks now and finally decided to participate in one of the challenges. This week's challenge is based on Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you" (NIV). In other words, we had to make a baby card, baby shower card, etc. I had this super cool set from Taylored Expressions, called Beary Special, that needed to see some ink so I pulled it out and got to work.
I started by pulling out an old Rollergraph teddy bear wheel and inking it up with Stampin Up! pretty in pink dye ink on Stampin Up! pretty in pink cardstock. Then I took my teddy bear and angel wings and stamped then in memento tuxedo black in on white cardstock and colored them with prismacolor markers before cutting them out. With each of my layers, I sponged Stampin Up! regal rose or pixie pink dye ink before starting the next layer and then finishing off with brads. I used the phrase "My Little Angel" because new babies are born totally innocent and express an innocent love as well. They learn bad habits from their parents, siblings, and outside influences.
