Eat more cake !

Hello everyone,

After doing my art journal for Wanderlust I fancied doing something else so I made this card. When it was finished I remembered that at Craft Stamper's 'take it, make it' challenge it's 'take a stamp' this month. So I am linking this card up there... You never know !

The background started out as a piece of 12 x 12 card stock which was brayered with acrylic Paints. I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints for this. I then stamped the background, using stamped by Finnabair/Prima. When I was happy with it I cut it into 6 panels which can be used either as postcards or as panels to adhere to card blanks.
I stamped the bird and the hat (both Tim Holtz) on white card stock and coloured both with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them onto my card panel. I drew a line around the panel and stamped the sentiment (Tim Holtz) . I think this will make a super cute birthday card ! 

Thank you so much for stopping by (again) ;o)

  10. LOL, such a great sentiment! I love the expression on the bird's face and Corrie, once again, your colouring of your stamped images, it is so beautiful, perfection.
    I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even watched one of the Wanderlust videos as yet :(
