Allsorts 470: Baby, Baby

Good morning and happy Saturday! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge, this week it's Wendy's turn to host and she chose the theme of Baby, Baby. Hope you can join us .... we have two wonderful prizes to give away this week, one is by our wonderful sponsor DigiStamp Boutique, and we also have cute Crafter's Companion stamp set from the Allsorts prize box.

I had to opportunity to select a set from Digistamp Boutique for today's card and I picked "Louie Love Set". This set contains 3 cute bear images, and I thought this one was perfect for a baby card. The hearts are blank, so you can fill them in with any 4 letter word you want, it could be Love, Baby or maybe even a personalized 4 letter name. I went with"Baby" to fit our challenge theme.

I colored this image using my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils on Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock and used Blending Stumps dipped in baby oil for blending. I love to use baby oil as an alternative to Gamsol because there are no toxic fumes and I find it works just as well. The image panel was cut out using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die set and I inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink. The sentiment is from a retired Set by Whimsy Stamps and patterned papers are from my stash. I added some May Arts crochet pink lace, a button and Natural Jute Twine. The card base is Stampin Up's Smokey Slate card stock. An old corner rounder by Creative Memories (which I've had since my scrapbooking days back in 2001) was  used on two corners of the sentiment. It's amazing how well this tool still works!!
Here is another look at the cute image.
