Age Is Only A Number

You're HOW Old?
A friend of mine turned 50 on Saturday, yesterday was her "surprise" party. This bird from Stamps Happen has the cutest smug look anyway...I just adjusted it a tad. By adding the googly eyes and using a fine tip artist pen to open his beak, he looks shocked about this birthday!!


It's colored with Copics, masked and airbrushed. The other day I was reading Julie's (Just Write Designs) blog, The Write Stuff on how she does her "out of box". Pure genius I tell ya!! I love her technique!! Check it out!

The card also qualifies for our CCEE challenge, to use a tool, die, embellishment etc. that you haven't used for a looooong time... the sentiment frame is a Sizzix die cut. I've maybe used it once or twice and don't remember how long ago! The sentiment is computer generated.

Dawn, this is awesome! I love how colorful and cheerful this is. It will take a little bit of the sting out of turning 50 and bring a big smile :)

heeheehee I love the look on his face! This is so incredible. I will have to get more Copic colours so I can try and get the rich gorgeous saturation that you've mastered. I agree with everyone: AMAZING!!!!
