Crafter's Companion Challenge - Baby

This month's Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog theme is Baby.  I'm featuring an image from Popcorn the Bear - A Gift for You.

I stamped the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and onto Pearlescent multi-colored Paper Pack. I knew I wanted to paper piece the present with this cool pearlescent pink sheet.

I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. Starting with the bear, I used colors GB1, GB6 and GB9I used a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also pallet coloring - scribble color onto an acrylic block and pick up with a lighter color. As you lay the color on the cardstock, a natural blending occurs. After I colored him, I allowed him to dry.  I spritzed a piece of fabric with alcohol, laid it over the the colored area and pressed it gently. 

Next, I added a little color to the baby's present, using BP1 and BP4. I used  CR1 for the shading.

Added color to the cute little duck with CT1, CT4, GB6, and OR1 and cut out the present. For any areas I trimmed a little too much, I widened the line with a black marker and colored a little pink - so it would not be so obvious. :o)  I used  Collall's Tacky-Glue to adhere the heart wrapping paper.

After coloring in a ground with IG1, I cut out the image and popped it up with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles

I hand wrote the little welcome on the  gift tag.

What a darling baby card. I love how you popped the heart up too. That really adds so much to the overall design.
