Happy Birthday

Hi everyone.  It’s time for another sketch with My Favorite Things!  I couldn’t resist using new Cupcake Cutie once again.  I ♥ her.  I pretty much followed the sketch.  However, I substituted the balloons for the banner piece, placing the replacement behind the image instead of on top.  I also cut out my image on the left as opposed to leaving it on the panel.  That’s ok though, right? Sketches are “inspiration.”  Not law.  :)

All stamping (for coloring) was done on X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copics. The girl is popped up on foam tape as is the right-most balloon.

I colored two balloons with markers then used a black Copic Multi-liner and piercing template to create the dotted pattern on the third.

Once everything was colored and assembled, I dotted over the cupcake toppings with a clear 3-d glaze pen.

Along the bottom, I adhered a Cotton Candy strip of Simply Scallops Small Die-namics.

On the inside, I stamped the girl and balloon then drew in the string.

<—Here’s the sketch (which I flipped) if you’d like to play along.
