Gelatos and baby mobile.

Hi everyone, it's a grey day outside so I'm alternating between the craft room and a bit of housework, just a bit lol!

I used silver metallic gelatos to paint the frame of the mobile and the sentiment, it's a lovely soft shimmery silver in real life. The animals were cut from scraps of coloured card, although the elephant was a white scrap coloured with spun sugar distress ink to match the matted border.

I never want to "waste"a whole piece of coloured card as a mat and colouring the edges, which is all you need, of a white card is so much more economical. (Must be my Scottish side coming through lol!)

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Anything goes at Just Us Girls,

it's also anything goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

That mobile is so cute and your soft colors are perfect for baby. Metallic gelato is really nice for using on anything metal. I have to look for that.

So adorable and love the texture of the background card. The gelto's look great and such a sweet card. I live in the west of Scotland ...I didn't know you hailed from Scotland x

Hi Cathy, a super cute new baby card for a little girl, had to laugh about your Scottish side coming out, as I decided a couple of pieces of patterned paper were far to big for the recycling box.... Have a wonderful week... Megan

Soft and so sweet, Cathy ... the textured background puts me in mind of a baby blanket ... the pastel mobile is lovely against it! Hugs, Anita :)
