Welcome Baby Girl!

Today, I stepped out of my comfort zone to create a clean and simple card. For some reason, CAS cards makes me nervous leaving so much white space but I think on this card it worked out quite well. The baby sheep sitting in its wagon is so adorable. 
To create this card, on white cardstock paper, I used an ink smooshing technique with distress inks in Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Wilted Violet. 
While I let the background air dry, I stamped the images with Memento tuxedo black ink and coloured it in with copic markers. Then, I cut them out by hand since I don't have the coordinating dies and attached double sided foam tape on the back of the images.
Then, I stamped the sentiment and attached the images on the card. I made sure to stick the piece of string on the foam tape before attaching it to the card. It's so cute having the little ducks behind the wagon. For the final touches, I glued heart sequins and used wink of stella. 
Materials used on the card:
- Mama Elephant - Rowdy Raccoons
- My Favorite Things - Ewe Are The Best
- Simon Says Stamp - Handwritten Borders
- Lawn Fawn - Love 'n Breakfast
