On to my creation! For this one I picked up one of Becky Fleck's new sets for Penny Black. You have to see this set HERE so you can see all the possibilities! There's a little cupcake stand and you can place these items on it! Instead of masking and creating a scene -- I literally wanted to use ALL these cute images on one card!
So I started by stamping all of the images on some scratch pieces of white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I grabbed my Copic markers and went to down coloring. There are far too many colors of markers to mention but as a general rule of thumb -- when I am coloring small images, I usually just pick a light and a dark of the same color family and then color that way -- so for the chocolate -- I'd pick a light brown and a dark brown and let the color variations show just with the two. After I was done coloring, I used a 1" circle punch to punch out all my images and a 1-1/4" circle punch to serve as my mat. I matted it all up on a square of decorative paper and a larger piece I cut out using the Grand Scalloped Squares die by Spellbinders.
And, here's a close up! You can see on some of those little images, I did add some razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue!
And that, my friends, is it! a fun and colorful way to send along some Happy Birthday Wishes! I don't know about you -- but I can always use more birthday cards in my stash of creations to have on hand!
There's going to be lots of fun here on the Out To Impress Blog! Wednesday starts the sneak peeks for Flourishes and man, oh man, there are some beautiful blossoms that are about to be released -- so stay tuned for those sneaks! Until then!
