Hi crafty peeps!
I am back after quite a while with a cute little card. Work has been keeping me busy these days not leaving uch time for crafting. Sharing a quick card I made using the baby in a pram stamp from "Special Delivery" stampset by Jane's Doodles.



I stamped the image using Ranger Archival ink onto White CS and colored them using watercolors. Then I gave a waterwash around the centre image and blended multiple watercolors. Adhered couple of sequins and added a few stars for the twinkling effect.
