Baby Agata

My sister-in-law had a new baby girl in May and I made a card to welcome the little one, but unfortunately the card got lost in the mail. Here is the new card I made for her.

Here’s a close-up of the flowers and the image. The heart is stamped with watermark and then heat embossed with clear powder. It is then inked with Milled Lavender Distress ink.

A close-up of the tag. It is an image transfer I made quite some time ago, using a printed image and then transferred with Mod Podge onto the tag for a shabby distressed look. The tag is then inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink and heat embossedwith clear powder.

The challenge on the Just Magnolia blog is distressing this week, so how could I resist entering? 🙂 It is my first time joining in this challenge, but I’m sure it won’t be my last! I used this week’s gorgeous sketch on the Truly Scrumptious blog.

This photo doesn’t show it but the snow flake (a Nestie die) has a coat of Crackle Accent on the Broken China distress ink and it looks really cool IRL. The image is coloured with Distress Inks.
