Growing Love: Version 3

I have a 3rd version of one of my favorite Sweet Pea Stamps to share with you today. It’s called Growing Love by ching chou kuik. I made this card for a friend of mine that just welcomed her son into the world.


Plus, this month’s Smeared & Smudged Guest Designer, Helen, has challenged us to create something for the theme “New Life.” Well, this couldn’t be more perfect for that challenge!





I just can’t get enough of this image! And thankfully, I am super inspired to redo it in lots of different ways! I love her hair in this version. I used my watercolor markers again for everything but her skin.





I also used some Platinum Liquid Pearls to add some shine and dimension. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea Stamps.





I shredded the edges a bit for more dimension…and we all know I love me some distressing!



This challenge will actually be running through the month of May, for a total of 6 weeks to play along. So put on those thinking caps, and start working on your New Life project! Then, show it off in the Smeared & Smudged forum. Have an inspiring day!!!
