Welcome, Baby!

Hero Arts has a new contest this month and one of the challenges is clean and simple stamping. That's right up my alley! I inked up a couple of new Hero Arts stamps for this including the Tartan Background and a sentiment from Heyday Sentiments. The cute little robot is from Robot Trio. I coloured and fussy cut the robot but I didn't want to cut out the antennae and wires around his ankles so I stamped him again right on the Tartan Background before adhering the coloured version. The banner is also layered for added dimension. I'll be sending this off to my sweet friend Cristina who had a baby boy a couple of weeks ago.

Quick Reminder: I will be hosting a Hero Arts Scramble complete with prizes this Saturday, August 4th at 3:00 p.m. EST. If you are around and have 90-minutes to play, I hope to see you at the Hero Arts Flickr Group in a couple of days! All you need is Hero Arts stamps and your imagination. :D

I love the tartan background stamped so subtly! Awesome colouring of the robot, of course.
And apologies -- I'll be in a car when the Scramble happens, so 1) no internet and 2) hard to stamp well in a moving vehicle! :D
