Family Portrait

This isn't our family portrait right now, but it will be in January! We are expecting our first baby on January 23 and this couple looks pretty much like my husband and I -- you know, if we were stick people.

This is one of my swaps for the SSUS group at convention.

So, for this card, I first stamped the baby's body and head in the center of the white card stock using Timber Brown Stazon Ink. Then I covered the baby with a mask made out of post-it notes and stamped the mom and dad on top. Then I watercolored using my ink pads and an aquapainter.

The little safety pin and the sentiment both come from the new Short & Sweet stamp set. You can't tell from the picture, but the sentiment and family are popped up on pop-up glue dots.

The layout is from sketch challenge 121 on splitcoast.

Stamps: All in the Family, Short & Sweet
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava, So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa
Card stock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava
Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta
Ribbon
Tools: Small Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Pop-up Glue Dots
