Make It Monday...Ahoy Little Sailor!


It's been awhile since I've been able to jump in on a Papertrey Make it Monday challenge.  I'm excited to have a chance to try on the coloring with white ink challenge #25.  Taking Heather's lead with her snowman stamped on craft, I decided on the cute onesie from the Bitty Baby Blessings set. 


I loved how the white ink gave the onesie a soft cottony look. 


I didn't love how the white ink lightens the black ink stamped lines so I did my best to re-line the images with a fine line black marker....the boat sail proved a little tough for me!  I also colored in the sail with a white poster paint sharpie pen so it would pop from the onesie a bit.  This was a really fun technique, especially on kraft paper.  Thanks for the inspiration Heather!Photobucket

I agree, the white does make for a soft white cotton look - a perfect stamp choice! I did not like the way the white covered the black lines either so drew over them with a marker just like you did ;-) I think it makes the world of difference!
