Happy Happy Birthday (stamping bella)

Welcome to another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella! Last week’s challenge was to create a birthday or celebration card. I can never have too many birthday cards on hand so this was a welcome challenge.

Stamping Bella Milton

Milton, who comes with the sentiment used on my card, is ready for the party! I colored him with Copic markers, then added a sprinkling of Queen & Company’s rivets in red and yellow.

I turned once again to Copic for assistance in coloring animal fur.  The instruction included in Coloring Cats & Dogs with Copic Markers is actually helpful in coloring most any animal. The book covers different types of fur (i.e. long, short, straight, curly), colors, etc.

I had a little chuckle in using the tips listed to color this long-haired cat. Poor Milton. 🙂  I used light feather strokes from the outside edges of Milton’s face in toward the center, leaving much of the white card stock uncovered as highlights.
