Now, here is my birthday card that I created just for Deborah. I decided to pull out a Sarah Kay stamp, some copics, hold my breath, and color and shade away. Blending, shading and getting the light just right with copics is one of my overall dreams. I'm pretty happy with this, although I know I still need some work ... and after reading THIS book, I know some things that I'm doing wrong, but that requires buying MORE copics :)
The sentiment circle stamp is from Lili of the Valley.
The girl with the flowers is a Stamp from Stampavie by Sarah Kay called "Olivia with her kittens Kiki and Sugar". I purchased this at a store, but HERE is a website where you can view these stamps and where they are available for purchase.
I've decided to do things a bit different for my blog candy, and hope that you can truly appreciate it. On behalf of all the hoppers here celebrating Deborah, I would like to send her this Copic Coloring Guide as a gift. (Deborah, if you already have it, please let me know ... he he)
As I said in my card .. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend. I hope that you have the most fantastic, relaxing, enjoyable day ever!!!
Now please hop along to the next stop at Rachelle's blog to see her fabulous project for Deb!
