MyGrafico Challenge #61 - Pastels


If you are looking for the Paper Cupcake Blog Hop post, You can find it here or scroll down a post.

Today’s challenge is a color challenge: Pastels.  This week we worked with the Hunny Bunny Stamp set by Sanqunetti Designs. You could be a winner of this super cute set if you play along with us. See the rules over at the MyGrafico challenge blog.

When I saw this set I automatically thought of a scrapbook page. I pulled out a picture of my youngest when she was only 3 weeks old posed on her “Baby Girl” blanket. The story goes like this: when Jorden was born we didn’t have a girl name picked out at all. So for 9 days we called her “Baby Girl”. When I saw this blanket at the store, I had to get it for her as her “first” name she was ever called by was on it! We finally decided on Jorden but she will always be our Baby Girl!

I enlarged the frame to fit the picture and paper pieced the bows. Also paper pieced the bunny and colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.

And here is the completed scrapbook page:


I used papers from DCWV Baby Girl matstack. The main paper is from the Whitewash collection by ColorCore Cardstock and is really a pale pink which is hard to pick up here.

Layout is from Sketches by tamara – Challenge #130
