It's a Boy! :)


Welcome to another Magical Monday! :D This week's challenge is to use this adorable little image with the inspiration challenge that Nina has posted over on the There's Magic In The Air blog! Since our good friends just had their baby boy last Friday I decided to make this card for them! I water colored the image with my Stampin' Write markers and blender pens. Just a note about water coloring with digital images. If you have a laser printer, the ink doesn't smear as much but I have found that with ink jets (like my own) if I print on watercolor paper and heat set the ink, it tends to bleed less. I then have to be careful to not touch the lines of the image with my blender pen and very little with my markers.

Well, I have to keep this short because today is the first day of school and I want to be there extra early! I hope you all have a very Magical Monday! :D
