Two Peas In a Pod

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

It's Friday and the last day of September already!  I have one final baby card from this month's Baby Boom Release to share with you today.  Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Website tomorrow as the Winter/Fall Fun New Release will be available.  There are some fabulous new stamps coming out, just in time for Halloween and Christmas!  Come check them all out...
This is Two Peas In a Pod (SS019) and Like Two sentiment (HH028).  Such an adorable image to say the least!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, glossy accents were applied on the little girl's hair bow. The image was cut using a Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small Die.  The Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large die was used to cut a piece of SU Pretty In Pink cardstock to layer it.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Garden Green cardstock. SU White and Pretty In Pink cardstock was cut for the layering pieces on the card base.  The designer papers are from MFT-Trail Mix and Echo Park-Bundle of Joy, A New Addition 6x6 Paper Pads.  The sentiment was heat embossed with SU Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder. A strip of SU Blushing Bride Ribbon was added behind the main image, separating the two different designer papers.  Foam tape was used to adhere both the image and sentiment for some added dimension.  A couple of mini clothes pegs were attached to the sentiment - similar to baby clothes hanging on a clothes line.  To complete this card, three YNS gumdrops were added.
