Anything Goes at Magnolia Stamp Lovers

Our challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers is an easy one, anything goes. Here is my creation for the challenge.

006 (Small)

My youngest daughter will be 25 on the 15th of this month and this is her birthday card. Hard to believe that she is 1/4 of a century old …. lol!

For my images I chose to create a scene. I masked the swing and Tilda with ribbon. The summer background was done by airbrushing using Copics, my airbrush system and Windstorm compressor. The birds were added individually and I added dimension. The happy birthday hearts sentiment is by Bildmalarna.

007 (Small)

I used the following Copics:

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
  • Dress – B04, B02, B00
  • Hair – E49, E23, YR23, Y23
  • Swing and Tree – E35, E31, E30, E59, E57, E55, G14, G12
  • Birds – B04, B02, YR16, YR14, YR12
  • Background – G14, B00

009 (Small)

The border of my card is punched with a MS punch and I added these wonderful SSD Gardenia’s from the Aqua-Marine pack. I also used a slotted punch and then threaded ribbon through to create the border around the top part of the easel card.

010 (Small)

My sentiment is computer generated. I use the MS border punch again and added some Imaginisce I-rock adhesive glitter gems.

011 (Small)
