Tie-dye baby card!

Well ok, it's not really tie-dye, but it's the best I could come up with!  You might remember me mentioning earlier in the week, that my mum had asked me for a new baby card for a 'grungy, tie-dye' sort of couple... I had no idea what to make, but sat down and played with some inks and sprays and the very cute Memory Box baby clothes die.  This is what I ended up with...


A close up of the little 'tie-dye' vests :o)


Items Used
Naturals ivory cardstock - Stampin' Up
Sentiment stamp - Quotables Celebrate - LOTV
Memory Box Baby Clothes die (out of stock) - MCH
Distress inks & cosmic shimmer sprays
(not sure of colours, didn't write them down)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Allsorts Challenge - it's all in the sentiment
Eclectic Ellapu - it's sentimental

The boys went back to school today and it's been soooo quiet!  I've really missed them, but they've both had a great day... apart from a shaky start with Dex because I can't go into the classroom with him in the morning now, he has to be dropped off at the door - he didn't like that!

Off for a little blog catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I love it! The sprayed background and tiny vests are so cool and look fabulous next to the solid pink. Your wonderful matting ties everything together and the sentiment is so sweet. Thanks for joining our It's Sentimental challenge at Eclectic Ellapu. I hope we see you again soon.
