Babushka Birthday Greetings

Good morning my lovelies, today's card features the lovely  Babushka stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I do like to add lots of ribbon and embellishments to cards but with the cost of postage I'm trying to make some 'flat' cards which are more economical to post.

I began with a background from my stash, This one was made using the 'Shaving Foam' technique and acrylic inks. I love this technique but it's rather messy so I tend make a batch of lots of backgrounds to make the mess worth while. I stamped the two Babushka images and masked them to add the background stamps. I coloured them with pencils and stamped the greeting (from Birthday Words) with Black Archival ink. I've simply matted the image on black card and added some faux stitching with a black fineliner pen.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

ArtbyMiran: anything goes
Crafting with Friends: Anything goes
Creative Fingers: anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack: anything goes
Simply Papercraft: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  1. I remember trying the shaving foam once... can't have been a great result as I can't find any artwork made with the prints! Yours looks great as a background for your dolls.
