Today we have a brand new “Anything Goes” challenge going on over at the LiaStampz blog… have you joined in the fun? Be sure to do so, as there is also a $10 voucher up for grabs to the LiaStampz Store for the lucky winner!
For my card, I chose to use the “Birthday Cat” digi stamp and color him with colored pencils and a blender pen. Working with blender pens are a lot of fun; you get a great blended look to your coloring, and you have a lot of control, which is great. For my coloring mediums, I used the Staedtler Ergosoft watercolor pencils and a Dove blender pen. Both work great together.
The card base is cut from white cardstock at 6″ x 5″… I went with a bit larger sized card, but that’s what makes card making so much fun… no card is ever alike! :) The patterned papers used for this card are from Craft Smith’s “Hip Tots” 12×12 pad, and the My Mind’s Eye “Follow Your Heart” 6×6 pad.
Behind the cat I used a Heidi Swapp polka dot stencil and some Ranger Texture Paste, creating some dots in random places. I then covered the white stripes and the texture paste polka dots with some Wink of Stella glitter.
The sentiment is created with the “Birthday 4 Subways” stamp by the Stamps of Life. The “Birthday 4 Subways” stamp is actually one big background stamp with lots of sentiments in it. I simply cut the “Make a Wish” sentiment out of the background stamp, and used the “wish” portion of it on my little banner. The banner is folded around to the inside of my card for a more finished look.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card! Be sure to also stop along at the other LiaStampz Design Team members blog’s for more great inspiration for this week’s challenge!
