Happy New Baby!

Hi! I needed a couple of New Baby cards for some school friends and this pony from Magnolia-licious fit the bill perfectly!! Our school secretary had a new baby girl on August 9 and won't be back to school for awhile. Well, she won't be back to work, but I'll bet she'll bring the baby in for us to see!
I'm so sorry, I don't know the image name or number and cannot find it right now in the store. ETA: Bernet found out for me that the image is called Cuddly Horse. Thanks, Bernet!!
As always, if you email Diana about an image she will help you out to the best of her ability! She's great that way! And, if anyone can give me information I will add it to my blog post.
COLORING NOTES
I didn't keep the markers out that I used so I didn't get them recorded (So Sorry!), but just a note on light colors. The blender can make your colors bleed at times.
I often use the colors with four zeros for blending between my shades to eliminate any lines.
For example, I use R81 and R83-to get them to blend together I would use R000 or R0000.
that's how I did this card. I know it looks white, but the whole image is really colored in R0000 first and then I began adding the other pinks near the shaded edges a little at a time. While that ink is still wet I use my Roooo to blend the colors into one another.
To tone down the pink (to better match the shabby chic paper) I added some E42 in ares and then blended again with R0000.
I appreciate that you took the time to visit!
Thank you! Hope you have an awesome day!
Cheryl

Precious. Your baby card is so sweet in that soft pink you colored the pony, and the DPs are beautiful and makes the focal image prominent. I love how you always share your tips on colors used and how you executed them. It's very valuable information to me. Your school secretary will treasure this beautiful baby card. Hugs, Cami
