Heartfelt Happy Birthday

sc312 blk

You can’t have enough birthday cards on hand! Seems like I’m always needing one!

This is the sketch and color challenge on Splitcoast this week.

SC312 Happy Birthday Heart

This is Hearts Hearts Hearts from Mark’s Finest Papers. It’s colored with Copics, and a paint pen for the white centers.

After coloring, I went over the image with my Versamarker and clear embossed it.

The baker’s twine, pin and charm are also from MFP… but… the charm was gold and the pin head silver! Not suitable for this card!

 *Designer Tip* 
Change the color with Copics!  I also used an Elmer’s Painty pen in the center. I also faux layered this piece by using a black Sharpie/ruler and a fine tip red Sharpie!

stamps: hearts hearts hearts-mfp
ink: memento tuxedo black
paper: bazzill smooth white, unknown
other: copics, versamarker, clear ep, heat tool, ruler, sharpie markers, cuttlebug/ef, paper studio punch, elmer’s painty pen, baker’s twine-mfp, charm-mfp, corsage pin-mfp, foam dimensionals

Well, I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new!

Thanks for stopping!

Hi Dawn~

Wow! This is beautiful! I love how you change the color of everything to suit your needs. The card is beautiful. Love the border punch. I am very curious about the Versa Mark Pen and how you clear emboss over the whole image after already stamping and coloring it. I don't think I have heard of that before.

Dawn, I pray that you and yours have a wonderful and meaningful Christmas!

He IS Able,
