Birthday Friends

Birthday Friends is a fun new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle released this month and who better to help celebrate other than Gerty and Eunice? 

I used the digi version, printed the image out twice and colored everything with Copic markers.  I doodled the "wallpaper" behind the girls onto the white cardstock with Copic markers and colored in.  The party hats were fussy cut from the second printed image, colored with Copics, and Bubble Gum glitter was added to the hat stripes and Berry Pudding tinsel glitter to the bottom of the party hats and to the pom poms on top.  Spirited Green glitter accentuates Gerty's eyeglasses and Sparkling Snow gives Eunice's necklace a high sparkle.  Bubble Gum glitter also adds sparkle to the birthday cake and candles.

The sentiment banner was die cut from Sticker paper using the MFT Party Banner die and Die-Versions Tide Pool font die.  I randomly sprinkled some Berry Pudding tinsel glitter around (after placing the letters onto the sticker paper) and then covered the rest of the adhesive with Sparkling Snow.  Glossy Accents covers the letters for more of a shine.

1/8" Tear-ific tape covers the seams between the card base and the first layer of patterned cardstock.  After exposing the adhesive, more Berry Pudding tinsel glitter was added for a festive look.

I absolutely adore Gerty and Eunice, Anne! Great coloring. But if I had to blow out that many candles, I'd faint on the exhale. lol
