New Stamp =

....New Post!  I have a card today using a really fun, new (well, new for me at least!) Whipper Snapper Design Stamp.  I had more fun than I should admit to in coloring this image.  And, I know I can make  lots of different birthday card designs with this stamp.  It will be a great one to play with!  It is called Birthday Tree AW175 and I also used a Tim Holtz Die.  I colored the  "background" of the image with some different shades of green, blue and purple chalks.  Then, I popped up the leafy part of the tree on pop dots.  Punched out a few butterflies, added some ribbon, stickles, glossy accents and, ya-hey, it's good to go!  My room is super sunny today and no matter how I photographed this card it has come out with HUGE black shadows.  So, please ignore the huge black shadows.  I do not have super - duper heavy black marker outlining around my sentiment, ribbon tree etc.....Since I am not entering this into anything and since my camera battery is alarmingly low and since I am somewhat lazy I have decided not to retake a pic of this card ;-D



Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always, ALWAYS appreciate your visits!

Be well,
Sheila

Sheila, I love Whipper Snapper stamps! I used to visit their shop in Wisconsin and it was the first time I heard about alcohol based markers! You have done a magnificent job on this image!
