TI - Birthday Ellie
Today's card features a Tiddly Inks stamp called Ellie Says Happy Birthday. Aside from being a super cute stamp, this is also a special stamp because we have an Ellie in the family and I could totally color the girl to look like her! How cool is that?!
I stamped Ellie in black hybrid ink and colored her in with Copics. I went for bright and happy colors, and I used a slightly different combo for the pink dress. I combined RV11, RV42, R85 and RV66 for a peachy-pink look. I then used my white gel pen to add some highlights and polkadots.
I die-cut a circle out of a festive birthday paper and matted it to a warm grey circle. For the rest of the background, I used a cool gray paper that was die-cut into a stitched rectangle. And I added all of it to a warm grey card base (standard A2 4¼ by 5½").
After adhering everything together, I added a sentiment strip. Since the card had a lot of circular elements, I added a piece of flair, a couple enamel dots and clear sequins as a final touch.
Thanks so much for reading!
