Saturated Canary challenge 11- Anything but square or rectangle.

Afternoon peeps!!!!

Its time for another challenge on the Saturated Canary challenge blog and this challenge is a bit of a fun one,its...
Anything but square or rectangle

I decided to use Baby Jake, he's sooo squishably cute!! I adore him! and love colouring him in oranges and browns. I used ginger and honeycomb promarkers to get that lovely autumnal orange onesie on Jake and then sandstone, caramel and cocoa for his cutie little hat and boots. He really is such a joy to colour up,I always want to squidge those little chunky knees!!!!

My favourite card shape is square so this challenge did me good to step away from my little comfort zone!!
I fancied a bit of a different shaped card and used one of the templates on my Craft The Year Away cd rom from Funky Hand. All I had to do was pick a patterned paper and drag the template over it, print it and cut it out with scissors!! easy peasy!! the papers I chose were from the orange october colourway. Its one of my favourties and I use it all the time!! I love those big juicy dots of colour on the wobbler card. I made some faux buttons with some card candies and thread and added them to the wobbler base.

I found one of my big tags and stamped the word 'baby' over it a few times. I added a little of the spotty paper to the bottom of the tag and made a little 'Its a Boy' topper with my nesties. A little bit of raffia and bling and the tag was done!! I popped it onto the card with some foam tape to pop it out from the base.
