Some Odd Girl - Birthday Five

 This week Some Odd Girl celebrates their fifth birthday. I'm a big fan of their stamps (as you can tell by the many, many cards that use them), so I wanted to make a card to celebrate.

Since I'm still very much under the weather, I just focused on coloring with my Copics. I colored 5 girls, one for each year, I then cut them out with a pair of sharp scissors.

I created the long card base by cutting a sheet of cardstock into 7 by 6½". I scored it in half to create a long and skinny card. I then adhered some happy patterned paper, and added the girls with adhesive and foam squares.

And that's pretty much it. Since the images are so colrful already, I didn't add any other embellishments.

  1. Oh Elle, you are endlessly talented. I could pour over your cards for hours taking in all the subtleties of your colouring. I do hope you feel better soon. These germs are taking their time in leaving you alone! :( hugs!

    1. You are too kind, Kylie! I can spot a dozen things that I screwed up when coloring, but I am overall pleased with how it's turned out.

      And, thanks for the well-wishes. It feels like this illness is just mopping the floor with me, but I'll get better before long -- I hope.
