Baby Stocking
My Hopewell neighbor Heather Pulvirenti started a Totally Hues color challenge on her blog today. Even though I don’t own any PTI card stock, I wanted to jump right in and tried to find colors similar to: Harvest Gold, Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst, and Simply Chartreuse.

These colors might be considered a little too bright for a baby card, but that’s what was on my to-do list today and I thought, “Why not?” And then I realized that the image I wanted to use was probably too Christmassy, but I couldn’t help myself. It’s so cute! Don’t you agree?

After a quick refresher visit to the Out of the Box with Nestabilities tutorial on SCS, I stamped the irisstamp with black ink on white card stock. After cutting it out with the aforementioned technique, I colored it with Copic markers and did some faux stitching along the edge. Card layout is this week’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC318).

Thanks for stopping by!
