Today's OCC challenge is super easy. Ready for all the details??....make a birthday card. That's it! Make ANY kind of birthday card you'd like. Easy peasy, right?
Hop on over to the OCC blog and check out the cool birthday samples from my fellow OCC girls.
I got this cute WS image a while ago from Sandy, even had it colored and waiting in the file.
...the file...oh I should show you that sometime...my oh-so-professional (NOT!) way of storing PIF'd images, LOL! Anyway, sorry, I got sidetracked there.
The image from "the file" was colored with Prisma Pencils and then blended with baby oil. Today I colored an extra balloon, blended it with Gamsol (because now that I've started working with Gamsol, I do prefer that to blending with baby oil), cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals over the base layer. I added some red rhinestones over some of the pieces of confetti, glued them down with a small drop of Crystal Effects.
I stamped four candles from my Hero Arts Cupcake set in the lower left-hand corner on the inside of the card, colored them with Prisma Pencils, and blended them with Gamsol too. The card wasn't made with anyone in particular in mind. My 3-year-old will have lots of classmates turning 4 this year though, so I'm sure it'll be put to use in another couple months or so.
...and lookie here....what is this??...could that be a stamped envelope?! Yepper!! ...just for you, Nicole. hehe! Now, I doubt I'll do this all the time, but I just couldn't resist making one today...just for you! :)
