Sometimes I have left over images that I’ve stamped that are sitting on my desk for no reason. I don’t like to toss them out so they sit there until I find a use for them. This is one of those cases where I had an extra unicorn from Polka Dot Pals Mason. I needed to test out a new color combination so I nabbed it and colored away.
For this project, I used the cake, an accessory stamp from Polka Dot Pals Ophelia, and created a birthday card. It’s also an Easter themed or spring birthday card with the bunnies and carrot that I used from the same set. It made for a cute scene.
I’ll be teaching at the Paper Nest Dolls retreat in April and had a chance this week to play around with one of their stamps. This is Sunshine Elle. My original goal was to have yellow highlights on the left half from the sunny balloon so I started with yellow and colored where I thought they would be. However, by time I finished I had blended out most of that color. Oh’well, learned lesson for next time.
While out camping with the fam, I took the opportunity to get some coloring in and use my Faber-Castell Polychromos coloring pencils since I store them in the camper. With the sun shinning, out in the country and the cool weather, it was a perfect setting for Polka Dot Pals Nour.
For this project, I used the cake, an accessory stamp from Polka Dot Pals Ophelia, and created a birthday card. I wanted to go for a boy card so with the color choices then I hope it worked. This cake makes for a simple and quick card and I like that. The accessory stamps are great!
