A New Baby Boy!

My husband's second cousin and his wife just had a new baby boy on Valentine's Day! This image by Artistic Outpost is my "go to" image for baby boy cards. I chose not to color in the image but simply stamp it in sepia ink. I added some color with the matting and lightly colored in the top and jacks with watercolor pencils. I decided not to blend with water as it would have enhanced the brillance of the color and taken away from the soft aura of the card. The litte boy and the top are raised with pop dots for added dimension. I hope they like the card. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
