KW Colour Challenge #16

Kristina has posted her latest colour challenge, and even though I have other things I should be working on (eg atc swap, card swap...) this idea popped into my head pretty much straight away so I had a go. I mean, a pic of little baby booties, that just begged for a baby card! For a late afternoon photo this isn't too bad but I'll see if I can take a better one tomorrow so the pumpkin brads show up better. The doodling around the sentiment has been done with the fine end of a Basic Black marker, the hearts and dots on the pram have been done with a white gel pen then gone over with Soft Sky and Certainly Celery respectively so they have just a hint of colour. I've also shadowed the sentiment with Soft Sky tough it's hard to see in the photo. The stars are on little bits of dimensionals although when bending the prongs of the brad flat they get pretty squished but still raise them off the cardstock a bit.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
