Retro Pram


I love this image sooo much! It's from Chris over at Sketching Stamper I have wanted this for ages, but a friend of mine asked me to make some baby cards for her so this was the perfect excuse!

The papers are all from "Daisy D" as is the rub on sentiment. It is ages since I have used a rub on, I forgot how much I like them. I have coloured it in using my whispers pens....(although I have to tell you I have eventually got round to buying some copic's with the pocket money I have saved from selling cards, just to friends and family and so 72 pens arrived today!!!!!!!!! I cant wait to have a play, unfortunately I must work first!) Also I have coloured 2 images and cut out the hood part of the pram and raised it slightly to add a little dimension.

The little flowers and leaves have been made using my new flower punch, and I added lots of faux stitching as usual!! This is my entry for:

Sketchy Colors - Yellow, Pink, details in bronze (the bronze details are there they are just difficult to see the the photo. I have coloured the wheels and handles of the pram in a bronze colour, and I have used the same pen to shadow the word happiness. - probably the only way to see it will be to click on the photo!)

  5. Hi Julia

    This really is very pretty, such soft delicate colours and the turned down corner really does add something.
