Baby, Oh Baby

Hi everyone! My card today is showing a new Baby, Oh Baby #857 Digital stamp set. 
It was time then I loved to color all the images myself. It has changed and now I really enjoy using pre-colored digis. Then you buy a Digi stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle you will not get only an outline image but also a colored version. So you can choose, which one to use. 
Originally this beautiful mom is looking to left. I took an advantage of digital stamps and flipped her to face right. To add a little sparkle to the image I 'colored' flowers with Sakura Glue Pen and covered glue with Merlot Microfine Glitter. Same thing is done with the word 'Joy'.  Sentiment is part of the stamp set. To add more bling to her I also added dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow) and Nuvo Glitter Drops (Pink Champagne) to her wreath. 

Decorative layer behind the sentiment is die cut with Spellbinders die (Lacy Ovals). I covered it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Squash Embossing Powder. I added another layer of Versamark ink and Squash EP to get even thick layer of this lovely marbled embossing powder. Some dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow) was added to the frame.

I masked upper part of the background and did some stamping with stamp from Demo Donna's Stylin Sayings #777 set and Versamark ink. Image was stamped repeatedly side by side with variation in how low or high it was stamped.  It was heat embossed with Squash Embossing Powder. White lace was adhered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Rest of the revealed tape was covered with Merlot Microfine Glitter.

Background papers are from Watercolor Papers Purple & Pink Digital Papers set. Pink one is cut slightly smaller then yellow paper. I inked their edges with Distress inks (Picked Raspberry for pink and Mustard Seed for yellow paper). Butterflies on the card are punched from same yellow paper I used for bottom layer. After I adhered pink paper on top, you can't even see that it has holes in it.

My favorite stamp set from June reveal is Swallowtail Butterflies #856. It has very beautiful butterflies in two different size and also matching silhouette stamps and many lovely sentiments. Love it!
I stamped detail image of the large butterfly to the Vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Before stamping I prepared the Vellum with Anti Static Bag to make sure that Embossing Powder only sticks where it should.  Back side of the Butterflies is colored with Yellow Promarker and Lilac Blossom watercolor brush pen from Nuvo Aqua Flow set named Spring Meadow. Right side of the wings are covered with Nuvo Glitter Drops (Honey Gold). After it was dry, I fussy cut it out with scissors. His body is covered with Dimensional Glue and Night Sky Sparkle N Soft.

To make the layer underneath the Vellum Butterfly, I stamped the big silhouette butterfly to the white cardstock with Memento Dandelion ink. Color of the ink is not important because it won't show on the card, unless you peek underneath the butterfly wings. I thought that yellow layer under the Vellum butterfly would be nice but after I cut out the silhouette butterfly I changed my mind. I turned the wrong side up and covered it with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Citrus Green). Loved this color more, so green side became my right side. Vellum butterfly is adhered to it from the middle.

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink to the Black Cardstock. I used White Detail Embossing Powder to heat emboss the sentiment.  Black Cardstock was prepared with Anti Static Bag before stamping.

I adhered White heart to the piece of white cardstock which was covered with  2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific TapeOceanic Glass Glitter was sprinkled to part of the heart, rest of it was covered with Margarita Microfine Glitter.

I had so much fun with this purple background. I played with Nuvo Aqua Flow and Glitter Markers. First I applied water to the watercolor cardstock and then added a light coat of  Lilac Blossom with Aqua Flow pen from Spring Meadow set. I also scribbled some purple from Northern Lights Glitter Marker set to the craft mat. I diluted it with water and applied on top of the Lilac Blossom layer. It gave it very nice shimmer. While watercolor paper was still wet I stamped some small butterflies on top with silhouette stamp. Instead of Ink I used same Lilac Blossom Aqua Flow pen.  

Background layer is matted on top of the cardstock. It's edges are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Black Suede Microfine Glitter.
To add a bit more decorative elements, I adhered paper doily on top of watercolor background and made some dots with  Nuvo Crystal Drops (Neptune)
