Birthday Cards


A couple of the DT members at Aud Sentiments weren't able to complete their cards for the challenge so I got to play with these two fun stamps from Stitchy Bear Stamps.
 I tried a new to me coloring technique for the bear.  After coloring with copics like normal, I used the old rag technique to add the look of texture to his fur.  I simply colored the tips of an old washcloth with my copics and then dabbed onto the bear.  I am really pleased with the way he turned out.  It was super simple to do.
Project Details:

For my second card, I thought this guy looked a little green around the gills. Just like he had partied too hard the night before for his birthday.  So I chose a funky green color.  I will probably put together a hangover kit to go along with this card

Nice job Julie, on these two! Love the fur you created with the Copic blender solution and that 2nd image really stands alone doesn't he? Glad you found the time to play with them with the limited time you had available - good for you!
