Christening (Girl) Inspirational post

Another card from a beautiful Karleigh Sue image - Christening (Girl)

I felt this image needed a lace look so decided to do it on parchment.

Coloured the face and hands with polychromos.
Embossed light all over, with  some extra embossing on the details.

I stippled the cross
Perforated all around her then snipped out.
I perforated and embossed a grid using PCA fine diagonal grid, 
then sniped out the crosses.
From another grid, Siesta  SPB016L    I embossed and perforated the flowers
and sprinkled them randomly all over.

I loved making this card

Male card

I needed a male card and found this cute dog at All Dressed Up

I coloured him with polychromos - a change from Promarkers today ;-)
I raided my stash and found some masculine papers that were from a C&C members purchase.

Fought with 2 ribbons and piece of twine on the bowmaker.. but I eventually won

This car will be going to my hubby's business partner for his birthday later this month.

Kind Regards

Karleigh Sue Inspiration - Boys Christening

I was on a role with my colouring - hence the 3rd blog this week already!!
I wanted something different to colour so went with Karleigh Sue Baby Boys Christening

I was originally going to do him on parchment with some lace work.. 
but after printing him off on cardstock in error I went with it ;-)
Someone (she knows who she is) suggested mounting him on an easel card - something I hadnt made in absolute ages, so she talked me thru it (in fact shared one her excellent photo dems ;-)

I used Pro Markers as follows

Skin - Apricot, Oatmeal, Blush
Top/trousers - Blue Pearl, Pastel blue, powder blue

Pillow - Ivory, blender

I used white pearlesent cardstock.

2 small round white doillies from  my stash
blue button and rubbon to make a bow
You cant see it very well in the photo but ther eis a circle of glitter butterfly vellum under the button/bow

Kinds regards
