Baby Belly Congrats



The catalyst behind creating this card was one I found on Pinterest. I absolutely loved the idea of creating a pregnant belly silhouette and wanted to recreate it for myself. I started off by tracing around two jars of varying size and fussy cutting the shape out. I card one, I utilized the negative portion of my cardstock (CTMH White Daisy) and placed scrap patterned paper underneath (CTMH Seaside). On the second card, I traced around the positive portion (which is now a template for future cards) lightly in pencil, then roughly doodled over it giving a doodled effect. To create the watercolor background, I used yellow and green gelatos.
This card inspired me, which you can find on my Pinterest:
