Ahoy Little Sailor

I love the colors red, white, and aqua mist together. I think they just looking striking together. I was playing with the Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set when I first received it and stamped the onesie and added a boat to it. I wanted to go with an aqua mist color since it was for a boy so I found a copic color that matched well. (Sorry, I did not write down what color it was and it was quite a while ago that I colored this image.)

Then, this past week, I decided to take my image and create a card. I used a 2 inch piece of patterned paper and matted it with red cardstock. Then, I pierced holes across the top and bottom. I cut mats for my image and pierced holes in the aqua mist layer. I set my image on the patterned paper so I would know where to stamp the sentiment. Then, I added three red brads and adhered everything to my card.

Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: noir (Palette), black (Momento)
Cardstock: white, aqua mist (Papertrey Ink), real red (SU!)
Patterned Paper: Everyday Blessings (Papertrey Ink)
Accents: red brads
Tools: copic markers, nestability dies, paper piercer

I love this card, I have to try this color combo, it would normally scare me but you used the perfect amount of red!

Congrats on the honorable mention!

like the aqua mist with the red and I would not have thought of that combo together, I'll have to try it. Plus it would help me use some of my CS till the ink pad is back.
