Twins!



Some very good friends of my family have this week welcomed the safe and happy arrival of twin girls!  Hooray!!
I took Lawn Fawn's oh-so-cute stork stamp, and added a second pink bundle with some judicious masking :)  The background in the window was stamped with two Hero Arts background stamps - the clouds stamp inked in Soft Pool shadow ink, and the magical background kissed to the clouds with Stone Wash mid tone shadow ink.  I coloured the stork using some Copics, and then painted some shimmer mist paint over the top of the pink bundles of joy to add some shine :)

 I'll be sumitting this card to these challenges: Lawnscaping challenge #36, CASE study #96, A Blog Named Hero #6 and CAS-ual Fridays #58.

(PS this week's CASE study muse is Joy Taylor - I can't tell you how awesome she is! Visit her blog here.)


 Have a great day :)

***Update**** so excited to be one of the top 3 at CASE study!! Yay!!
