This adorable ewe and lamb stamp is by Unity Stamp Co. I had this idea to color the baby pink or blue and make it into a baby card. However, I didn't have an appropriate sentiment to make it so. Next best thing, I used this sweet sentiment from Luck of the Irish by PTI. I used my Oval and Labels 10 nesties for this and I'm loving this combo for sentiments, it's classy and cute.
I created a mask of the image on text paper and spread a thin layer of Tombow Mono-Multi on the back and let it dry to make it repositionable. I applied the mask to my colored image after cutting and embossing and left it in the die. I applied Ranger Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Broken China and blotted with a baby wipe to get the splotchy texture. I love how Distress Ink reacts with water.
The patterned paper is from Report Card by October Afternoon and it coordinates perfectly with PTI Aqua Mist and Smokey Shadow. The ribbon loops are vintage flocked velvet--thank goodness my mother never throws out anything! I also used scalloped large rectangle nestabilities and the small scallop border from PTI to trim my layers.
