itty bitty welcoming committee!

Hi there!

I'm so thrilled to be showing off the 2nd set that I illustrated for Neat and Tangled this month.  Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee is a mouthful, haha.

itty bitty welcoming committee

I designed the main image to be large, and everything connected together. I love making and gifting card sets, and this large image is all you need to make a quick focal point. Also, when you keep the bunny and lamb white, the coloring is a snap!

For this card, I masked the entire main image, and rubbed a soft brown ink around the outside. Since I was keeping the animals mostly white, I needed to darken the area around them to make them pop. I also splattered some white ink to soften the brown and make everything look more hazy and dreamy. I stamped the bow onto the lamb's head, and the crown onto the bunny's head - both accessories are included in the set. The soft blue blanket and subtle pink grass finish off this simple card.

I hope you like it! Before you go, don't forget to leave me a comment! You could win a 25$ gift certificate to the Neat and Tangled store.
