Summer Fun: Elizabeth

Friendship * Sunshine * Critters * Flowers 
Join us over the next several weeks as we share cards that draw inspiration from the happiness of summer fun.

A bouquet of birthday wishes...

I wanted today's card to mimic a snapshot so I made a variation of a polaroid.  Instead of having the majority of the solid portion of the photograph at the bottom of the picture, I stretched it along the left side of the artwork.

After stamping the girl in Tuxedo Black Memento, she was colored with Copics and then the space around her was filled in using sponge daubers inked with various colors of Memento inks.

The artwork was matted with black cardstock and then with a small strip of patterned paper from Beau Jardins designer paper pad.

Supplies:  Penny Black - Bon Vivant 30-214, Beau Jardins Designer Paper Pad 80-011

Happy Labor Day!
