SCD Challenge 3"x 5"

This months challenge is 3x5 inches pieces of art work, with this weeks theme of being blue and white. When the theme was posted on Friday , i couldn't think what to do, until my friend Janet was doing a layout for her new grandson and it was then the idea came to me. Baby Boy!

So i covered my 3x5 in blue patch work fabric, stitched and spayed with chalkboard glimmer mist (mint). Painted some mesh white and stitched in place. My black and white image was an image i must have downloaded some time ago, so i scaled it down and printed it off on photographic paper and i then swiped it with some watered down blue acrylic paint and stitched in place. Stitched a lace trim on the bottom edge of photo. Added a couple of extra beads to my pin and a blue button and placed in the right hand corner. Added 3 pearl gems on the top left hand corner and finally stamped the title baby, (sassafras lass stamp) on to white card and distress inked the edges. Hope you like the end result
