Dynamic Duos #26 - Stampin' Up! Two by Two Baby Card


Today's card for Dynamic Duos is a baby card using Stampin' Up's Two by Two stamp. It is SOOOO CUTE! Love it to bits!

I thought that the colour combination of More Mustard and So Saffron would be perfect for a gender-neutral baby card.  

I watercoloured the image using Basic Grey for the elephants, More Mustard & So Saffron for both giraffes and lions, So Saffron for the birds and butterflies and Crumb Cake for the ark.

I now wish that I'd left the framelit without the brads....it's such a perfect & pleasing  shape - I now feel that the brads detract from the image. Oh well....

Please visit the design team to see how they used this week's challenge colours and I hope you will join us this week! :)
