A Sentiment for a Friend

This fortnight's challenge at Aud Sentiments is "A Sentiment for a Friend"! We are sponsored by Doodle Pantry, who have absolutely gorgeous designs.

My school friends have just joined the new parent club, so it seemed ideal that since we are meeting their little one in the next few days, my card for a friend should be for her!

So here it is: a classic kids design in the Noah's Ark image.

Here's how I put this together:

Background and waves, sunshine, rainbow are designed and placed in Craft Artist (using "Pirate Boy" embellishments and some "Penguin Aviator" - I'll link the store where I got these when I remember!)

The sentiment was added and the name printed on a separate sheet to make 3d.

I coloured the Doodle Pantry image using Spectracolour coloured pencils for the ark, Noah's hair and the lion's fur etc. The rest is coloured using Promarkers.
Then it was just the bows, buttons and pearls to continue the nautical/baby theme.
I hope you like it!

  1. MC - This card is beautiful! I love the background - your coloring of the image and especially like the buttons paired with the pearls. Very creative and PERFECT for the theme!
