Shhh... Baby sleeping

Hello everyone! I'm back to share the card I made for Copic Marker Europe, a little scene, a baby one this time! I make very few baby cards and think I should do more because there are some adorable images and I really need to have some ready, so here is one!

I used 4 stamps by CC Designs. As soon as I saw the 3 Safari Pals stamps, I knew I would put a baby among them - Baby Bear Beatrice seemed right for that! I stamped her, then masked her and stamped the giraffe, then masked the giraffe and stamped the monkey and the lion. The sentiment, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, is from the AmyR set called Welcome Little One. And I added a tiny star button.

Baby Bear Beatrice - Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 21
Hair: E50, 53, YR31
Outfit: E31,  33, 35, 37, E41, R20

MIC Summer Dreams in red

Hello everyone! I'm back to share some red colouring I made for my Make It Crafty post :)! I thought I could try to colour a little scene using different media, and although so full of flaws, I really had fun trying that one :)... Isn't that what it's all about ;)? Here is my card...

I stamped this beautiful girl called Summer Dreams, masked her, then stamped The Beach on watercolour paper. I coloured the sky and sunset using Neocolor II Watersoluble Pastels which are new to me and THE thing I had in mind to try, the sand was coloured with Supracolor Soft Watercolour pencils (I have very few Neocolor IIs... for now), and the reds on my character were done mostly with Neocolor IIs and a bit of pencil, the rest (hair, skin...) is Polychromos.
I added 4 Swirly Corners which I left uncoloured, 4 pearls and a sentiment from the Happy Days Tab Sentiments and that's it!

Products used: 
Summer Dreams (or here for Europe)
The Beach (or here)
Happy Days Tab Sentiments (or here)
Swirly Corners Chipboard (or here)

Challenges I am entering:
The Crazy Challenge - Without DPs
Digi Darla - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Anything Goes (entry #3)
Divas By Design - Anything Goes (entry #2)

Thank you very much for your visit, enjoy the rest of your day! Hugs
