Birthday time

Hello!  I don't think I shared this card that I made for Rosemary Bridges for her birthday.  We did a special post for her over at Yumi and Fumi Handmade Crafts blog.

I used Yumi Peace Sign and tried to make it really feminine and pink-y.  The sentiment and tag is from PTI.  The pretty floral papers are from Wild Rose Studio.

Here's a close up.  I ended up fussy cutting her out.  Ever since I started using more digi stamps I have been outlining the black lines with my black Copic multiliner pen when I use my rubber/clear stamps to get a more defined black line.  That is one of the things I like about digi stamps.  The lines print so dark and perfect!  Sometimes when I stamp my lines they are defined here and there with some not so dark.  I especially like to darken up the eyes.  I also use the chisel end of my black Copic marker to cover any white that shows after fussy cutting.  I don't use the brush end cause I'm afraid the sharp edge of the paper could mess up the brush tip.

Today was a really wet and gloomy day with lots of traffic in the late afternoon.  So glad to be staying in tomorrow!

Thanks for reading!

Gorgeous card for Rosie's special day! I love that WR paper, I think I have a few of those in my stash, and the simple layout. Gorgeous colors on her kimono too and love howyou did her make up. I cover up the white the same way when I fussy cut and I tend to darken the blacks with a multi-liner too. I've recently purchased a reinker of black memento and it seems to work really well so that i don't need to break out the ML too much.
Anyhoos, super cute card!
