LSC201 - My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens . . .

The limited supply challenge today was to use your favorite things on a card. Easy peasy right? Try narrowing it down to just a few to fit on a card *sigh* I decided to make a baby card using B is for Baby (Hanna Stamps). I had this awesome sentiment that I bought from Elzybells not super long ago that I thought would work perfectly with the images in the baby set. I also used the Mojo Monday sketch on Poetic Artistry for the layout. Favorites used: Hanna Stamps, Elzybells, Barely Banana, Pink, button brads, stitching on cards, copic markers, and most importantly -- BABIES!

I did some copic marker blending to get the colors right -- for an example -- I used Y11 (Pale Yellow) and then went over that with E00 (Skin White) to get a good SU! barely banana color, and I did the same on the pink, used RV02 (Sugared Almond Pink) and then went over it with R20 (Blush) to get a color close to SU! Pretty in Pink. Have you tried blending your colors yet to get perfect matches??? If not, try it!

Oh and have you heard about this blog candy . . . go check it out! I know I wanna win it bad!!!
And StarvingArtistamps has a blog candy giveaway too -- their sets are CUTE!! Go see!
