Welcome Little One


Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez runs a Progressive Freebie Challenge over on her Facebook group. You can use any image by Patricia to enter and then if you submit a card you can get a free image the month afterwards. I took part for the first time in April (but didn't get to blog it in time) and this is the card I made using this cute dinosaur hatching image.

I thought it would make a great card for welcoming a new baby and made it gender neutral in colours I thought would suit a dinosaur.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and added shading with Arteza pencils. I used a Spectrum Noir metallic marker for the spots which have a gentle shimmer to them.

The background paper is from the Spring Burst pack by Papermania and the glittery striped paper is from The Glitter Stack by DCVW. I am proud to say both are snippets as well as the green and brown cards used for layering the sentiment and image.

The sentiment is a freebie from MM Designs. They have not put anything new on their blog for a long time but this sentiments is still available to download HERE.

Finally I added some yellow buttons which have been threaded with some green twine.
