Happy half birthday

I have been seeing loads of designs with cats on lately and wanted to make a card for my friend.  However her birthday is in December, so I decided to make her a “half birthday” card!

I used a TiddlyInks digital stamp, coloured it with Copics and cut it out.  I then used a dotty stencil and distress ink for the background.  I made another stencil by cutting out paw shapes and using the holes as the stencil.  The sentiment is stamped in Stazon black ink.

I am entering this card in … TiddlyInks Challenge #183 Happy Birthday

 

Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep

So I am going to enter the TiddlyIinks challenge with this card.  I loved Janine’s card using the digistamp image For The Birds and immediately thought of the song Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep.

I used 300gsm card and coloured the birds with Copic markers.  I then cut them out and arranged them on hand drawn branches and used gems for the circular part of the musical notes.  I coloured some silver peel offs with a blue Copic and used them as a border

I haven’t stopped singing the song in my head since I thought of it!!
