OSAAT card for a new baby and new mother

Hi Everyone

Woooo how exciting my first DT card for One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog (OSAAT). It's been amazing making new friends on the team and seeing so much inspiration gathered all in one place. If you haven't yet been to visit the OSAAT blog and take part in the challenges, have a look, I am sure you will find plenty to interest you. They are having a 30% SALE in the shop at the moment. The link is on my side bar.
The sponsor this week is Hobbyhabitat which is a great shop with brilliant prices -
If you buy something from them please say you got the link from the OSAAT challenge site.

This lovely image is a digi stamp called 'Baby on the Moon' and is from Sew Many Cards. The challenge was to use one of Angela's images with the theme 'lace and ribbons/bows', and this is the result.

I have coloured my image using Promarkers, distressed the edges with TH Distress Ink - Vintage Photo and mounted it on a blue background which I made by painting a light blue acrylic paint onto some card, drying it off and then going over it with an Adirondack Denim dye pad. I spritzed it with water and blotted it off to give a mottled effect for the sky. I then stamped with a small star stamp from Lavina stamps using Versamark and Judi Kins sticky stuff embossing powder. I then sprinkled glitter over it to get a sparkly sky effect. The frame I made using Spellbinders dyes and covered it with glitter, edged it with Aged Mahogany and mounted the image over the top.

The pink DP is from my box of bits and edged with both Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo DI and then with Star Dust Stickles. Some music paper, also edged with Vintage Photo, has been added with some lace. I cut a scalloped tag using Ellison thick cuts and edged with Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo. The sentiment is from Melissa Frances.

I hope you like the end product, I am pleased with the overall effect and just need a new baby girl to be born so I can pass it on.

cloud - powder blue, pastel blue, ice grey 2
moon - canary, tulip yellow, buttercup
