Baby Carriage

Greetings - you are most welcome, and I am so glad you visit my blog.

Today I must say that I am so glad I never had to push one of these!!

This delightful image is from today's releases by McMahon Vintage Digitals

It was coloured using a mix of mediums - sponged ink for the backgrounds, chalks, a gold pen and a Copic pen, Burnt Umber (my first attempt). 

The detail on the image is amazing - and great to work with.

The main image was mounted over a Spellbinders Paper Arts Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilitie, then onto some paper from the Prima Romantique 6x6 stack, which was sponged with Memento Desert Sand ink, then mounted onto a cream card, the edges of which was wiped along a Memento Dark Cocoa ink pad.

The bow is of a dotted chiffon ribbon, and was adhered with a glue dot and embellished with a pearl.

The sentiment is unknown and was stamped and gold embossed, and the whole finished with some Kaiser chino half pearls.

The rest of the design team has some wonderful work on display and I encourage you to visit them.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.

I really like how the right side compliments the baby carriage picture in this one - the tiny dot detailing and ribbon all suit so well. Love the colours too!
