Watercolor pencils, fun fiber, and a baby girl card

And let's never forget The Graphics Fairy!

One of  my favorite parts about my job in a preschool, is getting to know the families, and watching them grow!  We just had a little guy become a big brother to a little sister, and I made a card for his family.

This image started out in black and white--perfect for watercolor pencils and a skinny brush.  For the skin, I used a crayon (yes, you read that right), because that was what I had on hand.  I love the little mischievous puppy chewing on the book in the corner.  He reminds me of someone....hmmm.

After I cut the image out with decorative scissors, I added the fiber for a little bit of texture.

This is a rattle stamp that I use quite a bit when creating baby cards. Just a little simple detail to tie the whole card together!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday friends!
