I got my new MFT "She's having a baby" set and I wanted to try 2 different looks with the same image and using a paper piecing technique. My starting point was cool black retro style paper by Junkitz from their salsa range. I usually see this set used in pastels and I wanted a stronger look. This one used a grey metallic card with Stampin' Up' "Seeing spots" as a background with Opalite ink. The gorgeous ribbons and stamp set are now in stock at Millhouse Crafts.
The image and 'precious' are from the same set.
I livened this one up a little by colouring the border and toys with bright Staedtler pens. The top stripey paper is Junkitz salsa and the bright pink and yellow is by Scrappy Cats. I overstamped both with Versafine onyx using a circle design from Stampin up. (Seeing spots). Swell news is from the MFT set. Just 3 shiny black brads to finish.
