Teddy and Train for The Retro Rubber Challenge.....

Hello everyone: This week's Retro Rubber Challenge is all about embellishing with Brads.  I must confess that I don't use them often, even if they are such a great addition to your cards so, I was very happy to see that we have a chance to give this tiny little embellishments their time in the sun.
I was wondering what stamp set I could use to really take advantage of this Challenge so, I went to my retired SU sets and I found the one set that will be perfect to use a bunch of brads.  The set is the adorable "Teddy and Train" and here is my card.
As you can see, this images are just as cute as can be and the little train, with all it's little wagons, is the perfect image to use some brads. Here is a close up so you can see how cute the "wheels" are.
I hope you like this card, I don't have anybody to give it too just now, but it's always great to have some cards like this at hand.
This time I colored the images with my Prismacolor Pencils and Baby Oil using paper stumps, I love the smell of Baby Oil but unfortunately, it wont last.  This is a very easy technique to color your images, all you do is softly apply the color with the pencils and rub it, using a circular motion, with the paper stump dipped in Baby Oil. Don't put to much color on the image, you can always add more to shade it as you go along.  Now, before I forget, here is the Retro Rubber Challenge sketch. RRBC12
I hope you enjoyed this card, I want you to know that I appreciate so much your visits and your comments. Thank you very much for stopping by.
