Oh, Baby!


I just love these images from The Peddler's Pack Stampworks. They are so adorable colored up, and simple color changes make such a difference! I colored these up with the Studio2/Copic markers. Then I took some Micropearl and Gum Arabic and painted over the lace and highlighted the shadows in the images as well to add some shimmery interest. Ribbons are by May Arts. The flower buttons are by Doodlebug. Happiness Always is from SU! Designer paper is unknown source. Card bases are white and the designer paper is faux stitched to them in white. The images are layered on a piece of white shimmer cardstock that has been faux stitched and distressed.
