Aqua Lace Boy Age One

Here is the card I made for my cousin's little boy's first birthday.

I decided to use the digi stamp image, Boy Age One, that I recently purchased from The Clipart Fairy. It's a really cute image and perfect for a little boy. The image was printed onto Xerox Colotech Gold card and coloured using Copic markers:
  • '1st': BG02, BG11. BG32, B00, Y17
  • Hat/Jumper: BG02, BG11, BG32, B00
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
  • Little Boy: E11, E13
The image panel was then matted onto aqua card.

The aqua stripe paper and aqua glittered bubble paper from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy mat stack were joined and then wrapped with cream broderie anglaise and aqua Dovecraft grosgrain ribbon and matted onto aqua cardstock.

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set, was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and matted onto the blue bubble paper and the aqua cardstock.

The floral aqua card candi from Craftwork Cards was added to the card either side of the sentiment panel below the image panel.

I also decorated the inside of the card using a panel of the striped paper and a stamp from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiments stamp set using ColorBox Celadon pigment ink.

Here are the blog challenges I am entering this card into:
