It's all about the presents....a fitting sentiment!


Can you believe this is my third post in a row? I have one more too for tomorrow!! I know, crazy, right?!

On to the card. I made this for a friend's son who just celebrated his first birthday!! I just adore the stamps from CC Designs! They are so much fun to color and you can do so much with them. How funny is that sentiment? Ok, so the image is stamped with Palette Noir and colored with my Copics. I don't usually have such a hard time with them, but I am not really happy with the shading on the presents. I also had a tough time with Lucky's spot! It was too dark so I tried to lighten with my colorless blender...then I accidentally got dark brown in it while I was coloring his body...again with colorless blender trying to salvage the image. Yikes! Luckily I use Papertrey Ink white cardstock and it's heavy enough to handle that kind of abuse....super paper!! The design paper is from K&Co. It's a Brenda Walton designer pad called Small Wonder. I love their paper pads. I pulled all of my colors from the background panel. I went over the ribbons and bows on the presents and his hat with a stardust pen for a little sparkle. I also used my nestabilities for the sentiment which is popped up on foam dots. Finished with a ribbon! I still think he's adorable and I see myself using the stamps from this set, and especially this sentiment, a lot! Have a great day!

p.s. thanks for all the nice comments on my Lilac card...I have to say that it's one of my current fav's.
