Hi friends! Well, I’m just having so much fun I can hardly stand it! I’ve created yet another project today that’s not for a design team! I recently joined the Twistoon Digi Stamps group on Facebook, and Lisa launched the December Progressive Challenge late last night. If you love twisted cartoon digis, this is the place for you! Her art is amazing! I chose Little Banner for the birthday card I created for my husband’s next birthday! It’s one of four freebies Lisa is offering in the Twistoon Digi Stamps store specifically for this challenge. What a hoot!
I printed this image on 60# Hammermill copy paper – my new favorite for crisp printing. I mentioned in my last post that my alcohol markers have bit the dust – quite a few of them have frayed tips and have been rendered useless, so I’ve had to rely on other coloring mediums. I pulled out the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for this image. You can’t see it very well in the photos, but I used my Marvy Snow Marker for his hair, lol! It creates great dimension! Ed thought the card was great and he chuckled… little does he know that it’ll be all about him next June, lol!
I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front. I pulled out some Hero Arts sentiment stamp sets and decided on Irreverent Birthday Messages. There are so many good ones in that stamp set that I had a hard time deciding which one(s) to use!
And one more peek… love, love, love! Can’t wait for Ed’s birthday in June – he’ll be the ‘big six-oh’ and this will be perfect! I’m two years older than him but I’m still going to tease him about this milestone! Bahahaha!
