*vintage baby*

Welcome back for another day of The Saltbox Studio sneak peeks! I can't say enough about this new collection and how incredibly versatile it is for any stamping style. Today I'm going a bit "shabby" to show you how perfect the new images are for a more vintage look.

I love baby cards! There is nothing sweeter than a brand new baby...and every new baby needs a homecard card to welcome them to the flock! This card features the new set called "Sheep". To give it a shabby look, I sponged the cardstock and stars with white craft ink, which works wonders in softening the edges. Then I sponged the ivory layers with creamy carmel ink. It's perfect for creating an *aged* antique look. For a little dimension, I filled in the sheep's body with liquid applique, and once it dried, I sponged over it with creamy carmel ink. The stars surrounding the sentiment were traced with a sakura stardust gel pen to give them a little sparkle.

Be sure to visit The Saltbox Sampler for additional *shabby sheep* creations. You will be amazed by how many different looks you can achieve from this one fabulous set!

Your card is so adorable! I just bookmarked their blog. I am going to be in soooooo much trouble between them and Elzybells. Now if A Muse would start selling ALL their stamps online I would be all set. LOL
