Bearly a Nurse 1422 - A Sandra Caldwell New Release

Hi everyone! It's Friday and that means there is a lovely group of wonderful new release images at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs. Besides the ones which the DT have played with and will show on the Sandra Caldwell Stamps Fans Facebook group, Sandra always adds some surprises in the fun!

This week, I played with an image called Bearly a Nurse 1422...she's a cutie! I coloured her with a mix of Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils. She was then fussy cut leaving a narrow white border, matted with black card stock, and fussy cut leaving a narrow black border. Foam tape was added to the back to pop her up and create a natural shadow.

The background for the card began with a rectangle of blue card stock cut slightly smaller than the card front. It was inked around the edges with Black Big Brush Pen and then faux stitched. A piece of patterned paper, chosen because of the "heartbeat" pattern, was cut to fit inside that blue layer. A heart was die cut from a mop-up card which had been sprayed with red Lindy's and a VLV heartbeat stamp was applied to it using Jet Black Archival Ink. Then it was adhered so that it lined up with one of the heartbeat lines on the paper behind it.

The sentiment was printed onto white card stock, matted with black, and popped up on foam tape. Small triangular pieces were cut and added to the four corners to help frame the background and finish off the card.

Thanks for visiting Bearly a Nurse and me today. We appreciate your fine company. To check out the other fabulous new releases, be sure to pop by Sandra's Etsy shop. Drop by the Facebook group, too, where you will see the awesome creations featuring these newbies from some of the design team members. We would love to see what you create with Sandra's images there, too.

Life is good; so is art.
