Hello everyone: I'm a little late posting this card, I've been doing some SERIOUS rearranging of my craft room, purging some papers, embellishments, stickers, glitter, ribbon, yarn and other goodies to donate them to my granddaughter Anastasia's Art Club in school, the kids are in dyer need of supplies, I'm also going to go get them some glue, tape and coloring pencils and other stuff, for their art projects.
But anywho, here is this card that I'm linking to the Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" challenge and the Stamp Ink Paper "Card Maker's Choice" challenge (we're suppose to use our favorite stamps and papers but, in my case, all of my stamps are my favorites, I chose this one for the Seize the Birthday challenge), and the LiveLoveCards Masculine Challenge, I figured this card could go either way but the fact that it looks like this chickens are all "boys" made me take a chance and submit it to this challenge.
Ok, just the expression of concern on some of this chicken's faces makes me smile but then, add the gazillion candles, this cake looks like it could be mine, hmm.. I think I can count almost 65 candles, sheeesh!! I kept it pretty simple, (ah...it's not CAS at all, ok? just simple without the clean part), I used colors that kind of match the chicken's crests and.....what are those things under their beaks called? Anyway, just stamped t his Penny Black image called "Best of Luck" onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers, I sponged a bit of Old Olive for the grass and a litle of Broken China distress ink for the sky, added 4 Candy Dots and that was it. Here is a picture of the finish inside.
Here are the banners that inspired this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
