Kewpies for A Christening Card - How Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning to you all
I have for sometime admired from a distance, due to the lack of time in my busy life, the gorgeous images from Nicecrane.  I have been asked several times if I would colour up some of the images, and been honoured to be provided some for free, but time did not allow me to play.  So I watched from afar, viewing those gorgeous images from the wonderful creations on 
Catherine's blog 
and the fabulous 
Wenche's blog 
and also from 
which is always full of gorgeous inspiration.

But now I am on my holiday's so I had already got some of the gorgeous images printed off and ready to colour up, but was surprised the other evening when Ignacio Molina Gomez the digital artist, posted his new Nicecrane images to my facebook wall, such cuties and with the most perfect name.  
Kewpies by Rose O' Neill.  
We chatted for a little while and I agreed to colour up some images during my break.

So here is the first and I just know that you are going to fall in love with them!!
I know gorgeous, cute, sweet and all of that slushy stuff that we love.
Oh and before I forget and you have to ask me here is where you can find these

 and many more gorgeous images.

The base layer on this one is cream, aged with TH distress ink "walnut", it gives a softer distress colour than the vintage photo. I added some lovely Kanban papers from Grimsby Crafts and then all those lush embellishments.  The dies are the banner and the hearts the nesties the grand oval small smooth and the elegant oval large.  The sentiment "Woodware" is a normal smooth oval with the elegant smaller oval.  The MS heart punch and then that never ending list of gorgeousness (if that is a word) from the Hobby House
Pearls, Pearl flourishes, lace, ribbon, charm, fancy button and the fran tage that is currently not yet on the web page sorry it is only available in the shop at the moment.

I really loved colouring up the image and also making this card, think it is going to be one of my all time favourites.  The image is coloured in copics 
E43, 42, 41, 40, E53, 51, 50, E13, E11, E01, E00 and R89, 85, 83, and 81

There are some new images also due out here is the preview
