Welcome Baby from Down Under

First thing I did when I woke up this morning was heading to the craft room. It's been too long old friend! I had loads of fun getting out and old Lawn Fawn stamp set for the In With the Old challenge over at Lawnscaping.  I thought this would be a perfect baby card for a friend, as she is from Australia. I was inspired by the awesome sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and the colours over at Your Next Stamp 


I die cut the grass using the Lawn Fawn Grassy border die, and the front panel from watercolour paper using a Stitched Rectangle die. I watercoloured the sky using Broken China Distress ink, and the grass using Peeled Paint. Then I stamped the adorable kangaroo and koala from Critters down under, coloured them with Copics and die cut using matching dies. Last, I stamped the sentiment in black ink, attached a strip of Let's Polka DSP and adhered the front panel using foam tape.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Critters Down Under and matching dies
Ink: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China and Peeled Paint
Colouring: Copics E00, E34, E39, YG11, YG13, YG15
