Chameleons on Noah's Ark

I've used the Noah's Ark image from The Stamping Boutique (our wonderful sponsors this month) for my 'Welcome, Little One' card. The colouring uses my deluxe pack of Chameleon Pens - if you'd like to read my review and recommendations for these 'new' alcohol markers then pop across to my blog. I've used EK Success corner punches to round the corners (half and whole inch) and metallic blue thick card from Conqueror (via Creative Expressions) as my mat. The text is cut from the same card using a Silhouette Cameo (blade setting 5, double cut). Oh, and it's all on an 8" square card that I've also lopped the corners from.

March - Welcome Little One - Angelie

Hi there

Hope you are enjoying this month's challenge and looking forward to Spring!
For my DT project, I've used this cute image from the stamping boutique and coloured it with promarkers. I've compiled the layout in Serif using coordinating embellishments. With the colours being so bright, I think it could be used either for a boy or a girl.

There's still time to add your entry for this month if you haven't already!

Welcome Little One - Sammy

Good morning all, Sammy here with a little more inspiration for you all!

I used the adorable "A little girl with a Stroller" image from our sponsor The Stamping Boutique. As it was quite a detailed image, with lots going on besides the aforementioned little girl, I thought I'd keep it relatively CAS (or at least, as CAS as I get!)

I decided on soft pinks and yellows and some adorable organza ribbon I've had tucked away for ages.

I hope you'll come and play along too... There's still a little over a week to go!
