This is a week for birthdays for us. Tomorrow my sweet little, adorable and a little goofy granddaughter turns 4. These last 4 years have gone by so quickly...scary how the time flies!
I made her this little card with a Penny Black stamp set called "Mimi in Paris". Taylor loves animals so I thought she'd like this little one with a puppy on it.
I stamped the images on white cardstock and then masked them so that I could use some distress inks to make the background. I also punched some clouds out with masking tape and used those on my sky.
I used mostly my new Chameleon pens to color with a little Copic coloring thrown in. I find the Copics challenging to get nice blending like the pros but the Chameleons which are supposed to be much easier to use were not for me! LOL! I need lots of practice. But I don't think Taylor will notice my less than perfect coloring.
And then I used some liquid applique for the puffy stuff on the little poodle. I finished off with some clear Wink of Stella to add a little fun and glittery sheen.
Happy Birthday, Taylor!
And Happy Crafting!
Oh, and I entered this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge which you can read about HERE.
