Please let me give a warm welcome to Ann Lindsey, my newest follower. So happy to have you come along this journey with me, Ann!
I have a birthday card to share featuring one of the quirky housewives from Janet Klein's AALL & Create stamp set, #406 Housewives and the #405 Doodled Numbers set.
As usual, I coloured my images with Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the numbers, the polkadots on her dress top and the candles on the cake. The background was made by stamping and Distress Oxides with the #39 Totally Dotty stencil - I love the effect this simple technique gives. I added some tone on tone stamping using the lovely #434 Newsprint Numbers over the background and added darker stamping around the edges, using #404 Visual Ingredients, #434 Newsprint Numbers and #374 Reverse Hexagons.
I added the sentiment which comes with the Doodled Number set and finished with a hand doodled border.
