Sketch Saturday - Pink Gem's baby boy

I got my new DT kit from Janet of Pink Gem Designs this week and isn't this baby boy just too cute!! The image is such a lovely size too and I thought it would be perfect for the Sketch Saturday challenge this week, although at first I balked when I saw the sketch and wasn't even going to attempt it but there you go, I really enjoyed making this card. The colours are not the usual sort of colours I would use for a baby card but actually I quite like them together.

I've more or less carried the sketch through to the inside of the card.

Recipe:

Stamps: Pink Gem Designs Baby Boy Bundle and Stampin Up Riveting sentiment
Colouring medium: Distress inks - Tattered Rose (skin), Scattered Straw and Dried Marigold (ducks), Fired Brick (hearts). I couldn't get the right blue for the bundle so didn't use distress inks to colour this.
Twinkling H2O's: Sunburst and Mandarin Blush (ducks), Poppy Red (hearts), Blue Ice and Autumn skies mixed (bundle and hat).
Papers: Various freebie downloads
Tools: Nestibilities, Spellbinders alphabet dies, circle punches (SU), medium and small retro flower punches.
Embellishments: Flowers from stash, spacer from The Hobby House , Doodlebug Sugared brad charm from stash



Thanks for looking,

  8. Hi Bev, youve made a brilliant job of Janets stamp, Im in the throws of using the little girl stamps, as we have a new granddaughter due in the next couple of weeks. I love the way youve coloured it and the inside. The charm on the side really finishes it of. Well done love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

  36. Adorable! Love the stamp and the teddy charm is just toooo cute! I also wonder what you use to create your little hanging chain - I am getting into charms but still mostly use silk thread to hang them. I've been trying single jump rings but OMG are they difficult to close once you've got them open lol?? (or am I just hideously clumsy lol!!)Tips and advice welcome!!
