Butterfly Baby at Dies to Die for

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your Easter holiday, I certainly did!
I'm here with my inspiration post for Dies to Die for . I've made rather a lot of Easter/Spring cards recently with spring colours, so I thought I'd do something completely different, although still kind of spring related.

Spring is a time of new growth and that includes new babies, so I thought I'd make a lovely baby card using the wonderful Sweet Baby collection from Pion Design. Links to products used are at the end of my post.
Everything has been inked with Walnut Stain DI and I've stitched my papers with top stitch thread as I usually do.

I used the Butterfly Baby stamp by Saturated Canary for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  Isn't it just the sweetest? and of course suitable for a boy or girl.

I coloured it with my Copics;
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R11
Hair: E50, E51, E33, E35
Outfit: B91, B93, B95, E40, E41, E42

I covered the wings in Rock Candy crackle paint mixed with Glamour Dust, which gives a lovely effect, but doesn't show up very well in the photos.

You can probably see it best here, although the crackle texture is still not showing up sadly.

Isn't that Memory Box Baby Clothes die just adorable?
I decided to go a little Shabby Chic with this one and added a little white acrylic paint here and there.

To finish I added a sentiment made with stickers from the Authentique - Smitten pad, an MME brad fixing my little bow and a little Stork and Baby charm.

I hope you like my share for today, I'll be back later with my second post for today and it's super exciting!  In the meantime, if you haven't already, why not pop your name down here for a chance to win some super blog candy and I'll see you again in a bit! : ) x x
