New Baby at Passion for Promarkers

Its a New Baby theme this week over at Passion for Promarkers and we're sponsored by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who's offering a £10 voucher for her store.

For this I dragged out a *really* old Magnolia stamp which I've never actually coloured (to my knowledge!) with promarkers before though did it plenty of times when I used to watercolour and I've been using promarkers a good 18 months!  Again I'm having a play with artists pencils to add shading and I'm getting better I think!  It does seem to make a difference, what do you think?  The shading is under the arms, jeans, neckline and face.

The DP's I've used are from unknown, the yellow diamond one is also ancient as the shop I got it from has closed a while back.  I've mounted the squares (which are distressed) onto starburst stains and the nesties labels is also starburst stains (from The Stampman)  Cute little tag is from my favourite sentiments place - Stamping All Day and flowers are Wild Orchid (of course!)

Hope you can pop over and join in, even if you don't know anyone having a baby soon you can always put it aside for when you need it!

Ooooh, I love it! It's not often I see you using Magnolia images, but you colour them so well when you do!
The colour scheme is ace. The whole card is brilliantly put together :)
