Bright birthday

This is an image I got from the Canadian Express Image Swap on SCS. It is called Monstah Bash and is from Stamping Bella (thanks Crystal!)

How fun are they???

They are coloured in "experimentally" using my Copic markers. I was playing with my blender pen when I managed to achieve the gorgeous swirl pattern on the lilac monster in the middle. I'd tell you how I did it if I could only remember (now I have to go back to experimenting all over again!) The sparkly bits (if they even show up) are my Copic Spica markers - sooo pretty!

Again, I've used my Cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture.

The balloons come from the retired (it's a good thing I don't get rid of my retired sets since they always seem to get more use once they've retired than they ever did when they were current. I guess I'm a bit of a "late bloomer") SU! set, Favorite Teddy Bear (I've even spelled favourite like SU! does since *they* named the set). They are popped up on dimensionals and their string is the (you guessed it) retired SU! silver cord. I think they've reintroduced the old elastic silver cord in the new mini catalogue, but this is *not* it!

Circle Nesties, ribbon from Michael's (unknown manufacturer) and the SU! corner punch finish off the card.

Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, More Mustard, Real Red, Lovely Lilac and Basic Black. I can't remember what white was used, but probably Staples brand ultrasmooth...

Love how you coloured this image Lesley! I don't think I could do it the same justice!
