My SIL's birthday is next week, and for once, I actually have a birthday card made a head of time! Jamie LOVES stars, so I thought "It's Your Birthday" by Sweet Pea Stamps was the perfect choice for her card.
"It's Your Birthday" was colored with copic markers, and had a bit of sparkle added to her wings with spica pens. I added Ice Stickles in Lemon Ice to the flame and little stars, and I'm afraid I went a little overboard. This was my first time using the Ice Stickles, and they dry to a more solid finish than regular stickles do. I actually had to do in with a pin and scrap off some of them so you could actually see the stamped lines! So be warned if you're like me and haven't tried out Ice Stickles before - use a VERY light hand when applying them.
The sentiment is also by Sweet Pea Stamps, and I thought it went perfectly with the image. Jamie has been having a rough time of it lately, so I thought a nice inspirational saying would be appropriate.
Copic markers used:
