Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #76

When I first looked at the sketch for this week over at Mojo Monday Challenge Blog I immediately thought of making a baby card. As the week progressed I thought of doing an Easter card with the sketch....then I thought of a birthday card. I have learned though that usually the very first idea that pops in my head is usually the best one to go with. So new baby card it was! The image is one I bought back in the 90's so it's an oldie but goody. I colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils blended with Gamsol. I then cut the image out and pop dotted it on for added dimension to the card. Unfortunately the picture does not really show the true colors. All the colors in real life are very pastel and not as dark as some of the colors are showing.


Supplies Used:
Image: Rubber Stampede, Sentiment by All Night Media
Cardstock: Bazzill
Printed Paper: Paper Pizazz
Ink: Memories
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Ribbon, Button
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Techniques:
Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol
Check out all the awesome creations for this week over at Mojo Monday. Consider joining in this week for a chance to be one of 7 winners that will be chosen to receive a Verve Stamp set!

Sweet! Isn't it fun to pull out the old favorites and bring in new techniques and materials!? Did you use the pencil/Gamsol in the 90s?? maybe this tech for coloring is only new to me heeheehee. I also notice your embossed paper a perfect touch!

You did a fantastic job on this sweet card.

Gorgeous bear stamp and wonderful cards - I scrolled back and back and loved loads of them but couldn't put a comment on all for obvious reasons.
