New Baby Card.

Just thought I’d share a new baby card I made for a friend earlier this week. The sun is shining here so I decided to make a washing line full of baby vests.

New Baby Card

The photo was taken rather hastily one morning before putting in the envelope so the quality isn’t great but each vest spells out ‘Isabel’. I drew myself a template of a baby vest, drew round it 6 times and coloured each on with my Promarkers. I struggled to get enough depth of colour (must practise more!) so went over the top with Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils. I used cut down cocktail sticks and bakers twine for the washing line and used a basic cloud stamp to make the background. The parents seemed really pleased with it which always makes me happy 🙂

  1. Your card looks wonderful. The vests turned out particularly well, lots of colour and the shading gave a good dimension to them. Many years ago I made a stencil for little Christmas stockings…it was fiddly work but the result was worth it. I have the prisma colour pencils and am embarrassed to say I haven’t used them much :-/

    1. Thank you. The colouring certainly improved once I added the pencils. I can get shading with them far better than I can my promarkers. Love the idea of Christmas stocking stencils. I may have to steal it!
