May Arts and Stampendous Blog Hop

We’ve had so much fun this week showcasing beautiful ribbon from May Arts and some new stamp designs from Stampendous! Stamps! I have been neglecting my Copic markers lately so I pulled out a new House-Mouse Designs® stamp and got colouring. Here's today's card: 

Who doesn't need birthday cards? This is a great any-ages card that I've left sentiment-less intentionally. I made this with my Grandma in mind - I hope she likes it!! 

You can see in this photo a little clearer that I added some fun texture around the edges. I airbrushed around the edges with BG13 then misted a piece of burlap with colorless blender solution and pressed it into the airbrushing. It's such a fun way to add colour to an image!

Papers: BasicGrey Patterned paper & Bazzill Cardshoppe
Copic Markers: Mice: C7, 5, 3, 1 and W5, 3, 1 - Skin: E13. 11. YR000, 0000; Balloons: R37, 35, 32, 30 and BG 78, 75, 34, 11
