I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday evening all,

Here's my day 4 card for Kathy Roc's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I started this card last night after dinner and finished it tonight after dinner. The stamp set is from the October Simon Says Stamp Monthly club. One of the cutest sets they've done lately. I debated with myself on how much detail I was adding, but kept going with it none the less. In the end, the details worked pretty well to create a little fall woods scene. Consequently, this works well for this week's "into the woods" challenge at The Paper Players. I also used the current Sunday Stamps Challenge, where the title is Autumn Richness, for the leaf colors.

The three animals were stamped first using masking technique. Masks were made for all of them and then the trees were stamped over the animals. All images are colored with Copic sketch markers. The leaves are colored in the Sunday Stamps challenge colors and fussy cut out. On the trees, I've used mini dimensionals to adhere them.

Here is the inside of the card. Stamps and dies are from Need & Tangled.

I love coloring time. This was a fun card to make, although not a quick card to make, LOL.

Thanks all,
