I spent all morning working on this birthday card for my BFF in OK. When I finished, I remembered, she does not like SOGgies. *smh* Oh, well, I have lots of crafty friends. I am sure I will make use of this eventually.
This is a digital stamp from Some Odd Girl called Painter Mae. I colored her with Copic markers and a white and silver gel pen. All papers and sticker is from PhotoPlay Crafting with My Gnomies collection. I cannot remember where the "happy birthday" die cut is from. The paint brush die cuts are from the May 2021 La-La Land Crafts monthly kit and I also colored these with Copic markers. I inked the edges of the cut papers with Tim Holtz distress ink in Black Soot. The splats on the easel are from a stamp but I cannot remember where it came from either! Sucks getting old! I used several TH distress inks for the colors. LoL Twine is from a company no longer around. I have had it since 2006!
I've angled the image so you can see how it is layered. I used chipboard to make the layers pop since the image came out so big. I created the scene in Word and I used a 5X5 text box to start it. I meant to down size it after I added the images and forgot! LoL So after I colored it and trimmed the edges, I realized I would have to be super creative with the papers!
I just had to show you the inside because... it was a nightmare! I kept putting the paper down on the fold! I almost tore the base! It's why the paint brushes are placed as they are. I had originally intended for them to lay across the bottom as if they'd been dropped. I had also planned to add a stamped sentinent above the white card stock but once I realized I would not be using this, I decided to overthink that. LoL
Thanks for looking!
