Deep Ocean Challenge - Something New

Hello and happy Tuesday. No Technique Tuesday from me today as I have rather a full week going on, with the new release from Whimsy stamps and a couple of challenges going live.  But I have a lovely one lined up for next week and something for you almost every day on my blog this week, so you won't be missing out too much.

So the first challenge of the New Year over at Deep Ocean is 
Anything New

Now I could have used some of my new stash but the timing was a little awkward, however I thought, 'What's newer than a new born baby?' and so I made this sweet and simple little baby card in soft aquas and mints that make it suitable for either a girl or a boy.

Oh and I did use my new Clarity stencil brushes to do the ink blending too!

After blending my inks I cut it out with a postage stamp die and then stamped a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Scripty Occasions Set , adding a few little stars in the corners from the Big Ballons Celebrations Set, and mounted the base layer on a top folding 5.75 x 4.25 inch card base. Then I cut and embossed the Baby Clothes die from Memory Box. I inked the the apertures when the die cut was still in the die to accentuate the little stars and heart.
You can buy these dies and stamps in the UK from Dies to Die for
Finally to finish off I  added a few sequins. in aqua and white.

I do hope you can join in with the challenge, we are being sponsored by the lovely and generous ladies over at The Ribbon Girl 
and you can win this lovely prize!

That's all for now but I'll be back tomorrow with some goodness from Whimsy Stamps' January release!

Bye for now

    Now, you mentioned new stash in your post so I am looking forward to seeing that! I have been good and resisted all sales etc., but I did have a little splurge today as I couldn't resist some of the new MFT release stamps/dies!
