Baby Bud Challenge - Ribbons and Bows
I recently stumbled upon Baby Bud Designs and instantly fell in love. Super cute, super squiggly and super adorable! Their recent challenge 'Ribbons and Bows' was so inviting that I had to play along!!
I'm using Baby Bouquet - newly released in their Etsy Shoppe. If you use this image or Oliver, in your creation for this challenge, the generous gals at Baby Bud Designs will give you one free, never before released digital image (YAY!)! So fun!!
So I set to coloring Baby Bouquet with my Copics. I then decided to, rather than color, I would paper piece her outfit. I printed her twice on white cardstock, and again on two different pink designer papers...so four times total.
I trimmed out her dress from my SU! pink polka dot paper, her sleeves from a DCVW mat stack, her bouquet was colored on white stock and then carefully trimmed out (teeny tiny!!).
I carefully adhered everything down. I matted her on the same polka dot paper, then on the reverse side of the paper that her sleeves are made out of (it has a garden-esque whimsy to it), then stitched all three panels together.
I added a beautiful orange satin bow along the bottom, two springs of purple bling and a PTI sentiment 'Smooches' from the Handwritten Notes set.
I hope you've enjoyed my creation and have been inspired to go play!!!
