Paint the Town ~ CYP Challenge 172
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Birdie Brown digital stamps, you have been missing out! Torico, the fabulous designer of Birdie Brown images, creates some of the cutest characters out there. This week at Craft Your Passion, we are lucky enough to have Birdie Brown as our sponsor for the current challenge, Happy Birthday. Since I am so fond of houses and building images, I chose her Doodled Town - Shops image to feature. I coloured these charming and detailed shops with Prismacolor pencils, cut out the image using a Spellbinders die, and then inked around it with Broken China Distress ink. The image was matted on teal cardstock and then black for more definition.
All three background papers come from MME's Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing paper pack. Each layer was matted with black cardstock. The beige checked band was cross stitched to the turquoise layer using black embroidery floss. The sentiments were computer printed onto white card, cut to shape, and matted with more black. The sentiment on the bottom was popped up on foam dots. To complete the card, three black buttons threaded with white were adhered to the top right corner and two Martha Stewart punched photo corners accented the left hand corners.
Thanks for coming to visit our little town...and me! It's always lovely to have you here. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the wonderful DT creations using more Birdie Brown stamps. maybe you'll even join in this time. After all, everyone needs birthday cards in their stash.
Life is good; so is art.
