Bathing Beauty

Altogether now, Ahhhhhh.

What is it about babies that make us so sappy? Look at those adorable little cheeks
, don't you just want to pinch them? This darling image is from Art Gone Wild and is called Bathing Baby. I colored it using my Copic Markers and added Spica Markers to the bubbles to add a little hint of iridescence.

I ran across some old Fiskars texture plates yesterday and tried several "sandwich" combinations in my Wizard until I was happy with the embossing. The result is the dotted swiss effect on the white card stock. (Easier to see in a close-up, click photo to enlarge.) It's subtle but I really like it. The sentiment is half of a greeting from the SU Baby Talk set. I cut the sentiment apart and mounted the pieces separately so they could be used this way.

Hope your year is off to a great start!

It's all about the details:

Card stock: Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper: Crate
Stamps: Art Gone Wild; SU Baby Talk

Ink: Adirondack, Slate
Accessories: Crate Paper Ribbon, foam squares, Spica pens
Tools: Nestabilities, Copic Markers, Wizard with Fiskars Texture Plates
