When I first started stamping, my mom and I would LOVE to color up some of Art Impressions Golden Oldies -- we'd make all kinds of silly cards for friends! When I cleaned out my stamp room recently, I found a couple shoe boxes full of these stamps and realized they needed some love! And, while I was looking to see if these stamps were still in production, I stumbled upon the Art Impressions blog a they were hosting a challenge too!
So, what's the challenge? Well, it's all about BIRTHDAYS! So, I decided to dig into that box and make a fun card for a friend who has an upcoming birthday!
I have to tell you this sweet angelic lady was fun to color up! Ironically, my family was watching World War Z when I decided to break out the Copic markers to color. Nothing like coloring up an angel when you're watching a zombie movie! LOL!
I digress! I stamped Birthday Glory on Cougar Opaque White Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then, as I said, grabbed my Copic markers and went to town! After I was done, I did add a little razzle dazzle with some glitter glue. I cut the little lady out and popped her up on my card front. All of the papers are a mix of Echo Park patterns. Add a little seam binding ribbon in white and some bling and.... ta da!
I should mention, the inside reads: For someone as special as you, only Angelfood would do! Happy Birthday! (Love that!)
