Babes and Tots

Gingersnaps Chestnut Challenge this time is Babies and Tots.
So get out some of those great childhood images and play along with us. Today I have chosen three images from “Rubber Cottage” to make some little note cards, plus I’m using a technique from the current newsletter called “Vellum Sentiments”. My design paper is from Basic Grey.

The fun little word stamps are from TAC. Copic Markers were used to color the images, and pinking shears were used to cut the edges of the vellum. Just a fun little “Tom Boy look”. Each card is just less than 5 x 5 inches square.



There’s still time to join us as this challenge doesn’t close until September 4th 2011. Thank you for your time and please stop into Gingersnaps to see all the beautiful artwork that’s posted.
