Baby mini cards

Boy was it hot today! It was absolutely awful. I had a really lazy day today for obvious reasons, but managed to get into the craft room for a bit.

I wanted to play along with Wee Memories since the challenges are ending soon. Have absolutely loved their challenges (I think I may even have had an honourable mention there once or twice) and I am sad to see them go...

This week they (Wee Memories) are challenging us to make mini cards. Well I seem to only ever make mini cards these days (except for a couple of exceptions here and there) but I did something a bit different (for me)- no sentiment! And coloured pencil on coloured cardstock!

I used stamps from two Fiskars sets - on the card above I used one of the stamps from the 'Baby Shower' stamp set. The elephant is from the 'Baby Announcement' set.

I stamped both in Versafine Onyx Black ink on Bazzil cardstock (cut and scored to make 3x3 cards) and coloured with White Prismacolor pencil. My tip when colouring something with Prismacolor pencils that has black outlines - go around afterwards with a black Prismacolor pencil on any lines that get that telltale 'wax bloom'.

So that's all I have to share... Hope you have a wonderful day!
