This month is all about Birthday's! What a great way to beat the February blues - we can party all month long! <smile>
I have a few friends who's spouses call them "Cupcake" as their pet name so when I saw this stamp I knew I had to make it into a Birthday card for one of them.
Meet "Cherry Chip Chimp" with his extra large cupcake!
I coloured my image using alcohol markers and cut it out with a stitch marks and pierce marks die - this die set is part of a Christmas present to myself I have been waiting to use! A combination of patterned paper from Echo Park and Carta Bella were perfect for my layout using the new sketch for this month's challenge.
I used some white acrylic paint for the icing to add some texture - icing isn't always smooth at least not when I do it - and some glitter to add a little sparkle.
The sentiments are stamped and one is fussy cut the other is cut out using a fishtail banner die. It is fun to be able to use part of a sentiment to complete your message. A couple white gumdrops finish off my card.
