"Baby Shower" For Someone Special

Someone very close and special to me is having her first baby... and so OF COURSE I was going to make her a card!!! I mean, what kind of a dodgy friend would I be if I didn't make her a personalised AMANDA card... with a Mo's image.. Of Course!!

Today I have used the simple but lovely "Baby Shower"... It's quite an obvious choice.. seeing it's a Baby Shower I'm attending... and this is a Baby holding an umbrella!! I love how this image is kinda gender neutral, so you can colour her/him up any way you want to make it a boy or a girl...

I've been inspired by another DT member, the Lovely Kim Bell, to get out my Distressed Inks and have a bit of a paint this week, but of course.. it wouldn't be me at the moment, unless I added Polychromo pencils SOMEWHERE!!LOL.. and because they both use the exact same paper type, my Arches 300gsm Hot press Smooth Water colour paper.... Phew.. what a mouth full... they worked EXTREMELY well together.. as you can see by the final picks.. The hair has been done in Polyies, as well as the green spots on the Umbrella and the background base grey's. :) So expect to see more combo distress ink and Polyies from me in the future... or Polyies and Copics... because I REALLY have to get some more practice in with them before I forget for to use them all over again!! LOL

So anyhoooo .... onto my card!!

Card Ingredients:
Painted/Coloured in Tim Holtz Distress Reinkers and Polychromo Pencils
Elements Distressed in Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" and "Tea Dye" Distressed Inks
All Elements cut out using my Silhouette Cameo... I LOVE MY CAMEO!!!
Card is a 15.5x15.5cm Pre-Brought Kraft Card

  2. Aaaack, Amanda, you are becoming a HUGE enabler showing these absolutely adorably cute Mo's digi's!! Although that isn't too difficult anyway, as they speak for themselves!! Lol! I've actually got a friend at the craft group i go to that wants me to make her a couple of cards like this, so may just have to get myself some more Mo's!! Thanks for the "Inspirational Overload"!!

    1. You know me Christine.. I can't help myself.. Mo's images are JUST TOOOOOO CUTE!! and we MUST have LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS of them!! because they get lonely in our Mo Folders on our computers without "friends"... Teehee...
