Creating an easy baby girl card using Spectrum Noir products


Hi everyone, today I would like to show you this cute and easy baby girl card. Let’s get started!

Step 1:

I started my card project by stamping this cute image (the stamp itself was gifted to me without packaging so I don’t know the brand name) onto paper that I like working on with my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. I stamped with my Spectrum Noir Water Proof Ink Pad in “Noir Black” and I heat embossed afterwards using clear embossing powder (but you don’t have to do this, I just like the way it looks).

Then I added my first colour of Spectrum Noir Aqua Marker to my project, mapping out where my highlights and shadows will go. I used the colour Tulip in combination with an aqua-brush.

Step 2:

Next I’m adding my darker pink colour Aqua Marker (Rose Red) to create more depth and definition to the little sheep.

Step 3:

Adding colour to the remaining parts of the sheep using the Aqua Marker in Tan.

All colours are applied with the largest nib and thinned out with an aqua-brush.

Step 4:

Now I’m adding some final shadow parts using the small nib of the Rose Red and Tan Aqua Marker.

Step 5:

Adding the colour Sunflower to the little chick and the hearts of the flowers. Red Violet to the flowers. Leaf Green and Olive to the grass and Lime around the image (with a light hand) because this colour matches the gold ink, that I will use later on, best.

Isn’t this little sheep totally cute!

All of the Aqua Markers that I used on today’s project are from the following sets: Essentials, Botanicals, Floral and Primary.

Step 6:

For my background panel I’ll die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller then my card base. I first stamp the sentiment (Kaisercraft “Little One”) onto the panel and then temporarily adhered the stencil of my choice (TCW853s) over this panel using washi tape.

Over this panel I apply some Spectrum Noir Midas Ink in the colour “Gold”, using a foam applicator too,l in circling or pouncing motions, whatever you prefer.

Step 7:

I totally love how this Midas Gold ink looks, it’s really metallic! So, now that my background panel is finished, and after adding some highlights to my little sheep (using a white gel pen) I fussy cut her out, leaving a small border.

Step 8:

Now I can put my card together: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from some matching pinkish purple card stock, adhering both panels together using liquid glue and then adhering this combination to my creme coloured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And to finish my card I now only have to adhere my little sheep on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that’s it for today fun and easy project! I wish you a creative day!
