Good Things

Purple, pink and black is the latest challenge at the Stampotique Designers Blog. The challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is new life. At City Crafters the challenge is seeing double -- to use both the positive and negative of a die cut or punch.
To create my card I started with the background of air blown alcohol inks (Tim Holtz technique).  I used pink sherbert, purple twilight, and pitch black alcohol ink. For the frame I cut the wonky rectangle from the panel. The part cut out was used for the sentiment panel. I stamped mother-to-be, colored her with Copics and cut her out. I stamped the sentiment and cut out the individual words to add to the sentiment panel. Oh, by the way, a friend of the family just found out she is pregnant. Coincidence??
