Sweet Dreams

Hey there, Crafty Friends!! I have a super cute card for you today! 

This one was inspired by the youngest of my four children. He keeps me on my toes day in and day out... and more often than not drains the life out of me and worries me to death with his very boyish tendencies. He plays too hard and seems almost fearless. But once he drifts into a  peaceful slumber, everything seem alright in the world, and my mind (and body) are finally at ease. And as I look down at him fast asleep, I don't see that little mischief maker, all I see is a perfect angel

Other Supplies Used
Spectrum Noir Color Pencils
White Cardstock (Bazzill Basics) 
Patterned Paper (Playshop Paper Hawaii)
Odorless Mineral Spirits
Blending Stumps
VersaMagic Ink Pads-Sea Breeze, Aegean Blue, Thatched Straw (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko) 
Momento Ink Pad- Tuxedo Black (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko)
Sponge Sweeper (Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko)
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad
2Way Glue Pen (EK Success)
3D Dots (EK Success)
Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter
White Gel Pen (Sakura)
PITT Artist Pen XS (Faber-Castell)
Frame, Scallop (Sizzix)

I stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I used Spectrum Noir colored pencils. I also used a 2 way glue pen to add glue to the sleeping cap rim and pom-pom. Then layered ultra fine iridescent glitter over both.

Then I used blue painters tape to hold my die in place and die cut my image(and clouds) using the matching Sweet Dreams Baby Dies.

For my card base I made an A2 sized card base and taped off the top half with blue painter's tape to mask off only half of my card. Then I sponged on Aegean Blue, Sea Breeze, Thatched Straw chalk ink. 

I shaded the edges of the clouds with Sea Breeze chalk ink and backed them with 3D pop dots. Then I shaded the frame with Agean Blue ink and added more 3D dots behind it. I mounted both onto my card base and a banner I made using the sweet dreams sentiment and double fishtail banner stamp from the Stitched Greetings stamp set. Then cut it out with the matching die and added it to my card with more foam adhesive.

For the final touch a drew tiny hearts onto my background with a white gel pen and added faux stitch lines with my PITT Artist Pen in XS.

And here is my finished card...



I hope you enjoyed this card... it really is such a sweet card!

Until next time...
HAPPY CRAFTING!!
