Willow Holding Baby

Good evening peeps I'm just doing a quickie post before I hop to bed.
I've done a quick card using another of my new stamps & following a sketch......
This is 'Willow Holding Baby' from WOJ which hubby got me for crimbo from Crafts & Me. I have followed the fab sketch here which I will be using again. All papers are Websters Pages.

I have painted this with Distress Inks........yes painted can you believe lol. I havnt done it for that long I've gone a bit rusty not that I was experienced in the 1st place I think this is my 3rd or 4th image I've done with inks.

Can you see the blue dummies inside the flowers I love these not sure where I got them from I've had them quite a while.

Blue safety pins are also from my stash & the ribbon gems. The butterfly was made using my Tonic punch.

Challenges I'm Entering.... -  New & Blue (brand new stamp & for new mum)
 Well thats it peeps what do ya think, have I broke my record for the speediest post??? lol. Well big hugs to you all for popping in I loves ya all mmwah.
Nighty-night peeps take care.

Gorgeous card, Vicky. I do love your little touches like the safety pins and the dummies. I love watercolouring with distress inks when i've got the time and it looks great where you've done it. Think I read earlier that you're feeling a bit better - glad to hear it. Sorry if I've missed a post, been a bit busy today. Take card, hun. Hugs, Marie xx
