ahoy, baby!

Hello!  Popping in with a card that I made for a few challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge.  When I saw this month's Stock Your Stash challenge I didn't think I would be able to play along as the theme is baby cards and my collection of Reverse Confetti stamps don't include many with a baby theme.  But then I saw RC design team members Deanne's super cute card using the whale from the Seaside set and I realized that I have that set... YAY!  Thanks for the inspiration Deanne!  My niece is going to be having a little boy in November and using the whale is perfect for a card for a baby boy!  I have some fun Belle Carta Summer Splash patterned paper and one sheet had a waves pattern on it.  I used that for the strip seen on the side of the sketch, as well as for the little ocean that the whale sits on.   I did have a hard time finding an ink that worked well with the aqua color in the patterned paper, but finally settled on a aqua blue ink from Hero Arts.  I cut apart the "ocean" so I could pop that up over the little whale.  The sentiment was created by using the word ahoy from the Seaside set and the word baby from the Beautiful Banners set.  I had to mask off portions of each stamp to create my sentiment.  That was done using VersaFine CLAIR Twilight ink.   A sweet clean and simple design!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! white; Patterned paper:  Bella Carta; Stamps and dies:  Reverse Confetti; Inks: Hero Arts and VersaFine CLAIR

Fun take on the challenge, Rosemary! Just love the ocean waves paper and how you snipped it for the whale to ride the waves!!

What a darling baby card! I like the way you tucked the little whale among the waves. Your niece is going to enjoy her cards from you so much, there's a lot of love going into them. November is a good month for a new baby, Sweet P is a November baby too!!
