Hi everyone! It's Sandra here and today I wanted to share with you a card that I made with a Valentine's/birthday theme using the amazing (some Some odd girl stamp sets birthday mae and cupcake mae). I wanted a really bold look because it was inspired by a friend, so I decided to color her in hot pink tones paired with shades of blue to off set each other. I really love the flow of the card and the girly feel to it and how it all ties in with Valentines.
The papers I used are from the Basic Grey "Out of Print" collection - so perfect for any occasion! I have paired this with some Kraft cardstock, glitter Gold (self adhesive paper) , some detailed stamping on some light pink cardstock and white Neenah Cardstock. I also used my Copic sketch markers to color in my main images : (Skin) E000,E00,E02,R20,W1 , (Dress & Headband) BG000,BG0000,BG09,B02, Hair & Shoes RV21, RV06,RV34,(Candle Flames) Y21,YR23 (Candle sticks were colored with the same pinks and blues as hair and dress).
Skirt Apron was paper pieced from the same Heidi Grace "Valentines" paper collection as the cupcake holder. I really had fun combining different patterns of polka dots to create a whimsical feel to my card. The frosting on my cupcake was created with a Marvy "Snow Marker" which is a really cool process similar to embossing.
