Bundle Of Joy

Just a simple card to go with the gift on yesterday's post.

I've had a few questions and concerns about stamping and coloring on the onesies. 
This is by no means the only way to do this, but this is what worked for me:)
I stamped the letters and images with Memento Ink.  I colored the butterflies lightly with my Copic markers.  They will bleed beyond the border of the stamped image if you use a heavy hand, which is what happened with the one pictured here.  It's not a lot of bleeding, but enough that I decided not to include it with the set.  I decided, instead, to use it as a test.  I threw it in the regular wash with our clothes and then into the dryer.  When it came out, it looked just fine.  Any bleeding visible in this photo was there before I washed it.

Cardstock: PTI White, Sweet Blush, Polka Dot Parade, Bitty Box Basics
Stamps: PTI Butterfly Dreams, Bitty Baby Blessings, Bird Watching, Enjoy The Ride
Ink: Memento Black
Other: PTI Spring Moss Ribbon, Copics, Scallop Border Punch
