Motivet DT card - Baby Dexter

Hello,

Hope you are had a fabulous weekend. I was crafting utter bliss! Having the upstairs decorated now that downstairs is finished and I could sneak into my makeshift craft room as the decorator doesn't work weekends. It is killing me waiting for it all to be finished. But, will be so happy to see it all bright and fresh.


Here is a card I made using one of the new Motivet images. Baby Dexter he is so cute! I have stamped my image with versafine black onyx and coloured with distress ink pads onto Waterford watercolour paper. The sparkle is Star Dust stickle glue. I have edged this and all my details with vintage photo. The stars and photo hinges are quickutz. The scalloped border is fiskars.



Well thank you so much for visiting with me and I wish you all a wonderful week!

love
kim x

inks used
Dexter - weathered wood, black soot, pine needles, tattered rose
romper suit - tumbled glass
bricks - mustard seed, shabby shutters, spiced marmalade
duck - mustard seed, black soot, weathered wood, vintage photo

I agree Kim, he is cute. I have some babies due in september, so must get some cards ready for the new arrivals. I can honestly say I have never used distress inks. Once I have some craft pennies built up, I am going to invest in some. They do give a wonderful finish, don't they?
Happy Crafting Hugs Tammy xx
