A Birthday Wish

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.

Once my image was colored, I fussy cut it out added some Wink of Stella glitter (love this stuff!), and some Glossy Accents to different portion of the cat.

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.
