This is for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge 10 - Walk on by. We need to make a card that inspired us whenever we took walks anywhere. I've been doing a lot of walking around the lake and most of the time, I always see moms pushing their baby strollers. I found this stamp in my misc. stamps and thought this would be perfect.
I stamped the image with black stazon onto watercolor paper. I then used blending stumps, mineral spirits and primascolor pencils to color the image. I added 2 tiny adhesive silver beads to the wheels. I also used my 2 way glue on the rose, then added Diamond Dust for a little sparkle. I layered with SU Pink Passion cs and SU Glorious Green cs. I ran the CB Swiss Dot folder on the GP white cs as well as the pink strip. The card base is SU Barely Banana and it's 5X7. The image is raised with 3D circles. I also added a thin green/white gingham ribbon through the ribbon slider that says "hugs".
After sewing all day making a quilt, I finally got the chance to do the challenge.
