Happy Birthday

Simon Says Finishing Touch. The finishing touches on this card are extra layers of Distress Inks to add dimension to the giraffe and under the sentiment.

The giraffe and birthday hat are from Alley Way Party Animal. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Life's Direction stamped with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. The giraffe is colored with Scattered Straw and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks smushed on the craft mat and spritzed with water and painted over the image. The birthday hat is colored with Peacock Feather and Peel Paint Distress Markers with a dot of Glossy Accents at the top. Both the images are fussy cut. The pattern paper is both sides of Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Corner Boutique. 

Virginia's View Challenge #8 is Clean and Simple.


As soon as I saw the sketch for this week's Paper Smooches  SPARKS challenge, I kept thinking of the hamster from Party Posse rolling down the slopes.  I drew out the lines and stamped the little "speed cloud" from Party Posse, then painted it in with Papertrey Ink Fine Linen smushed on the craft mat and spritzed with water. The Hamster is stamped on some scrap paper and fussy cut
