About 18 months ago I was given the sad task of making a sympathy card for my daughter's friend who had lost a newborn baby. So, it was nice when my daughter asked me to make a card for the friend's new baby, born healthily a few days ago.
She said a baby born after a loss is called a 'rainbow baby' and asked for a new baby card incorporating a rainbow. I did find this quite a challenge- I do have some digistamps and cutting files with rainbows on them but they all seemed too cartoonish (the sort of thing you might see on a St Patrick Day card). So I thought I'd try creating an impression of a rainbow using inks. Obviously, it doesn't really look like a rainbow but I hope it gives that effect.
The image of the mother and baby is an A Day For Daisies stamp - actually a clear acrylic stamp as they did these for a short while.
I'd like to enter:
