Be Happy!

Hello everyone!!
~edited to add - I think this card also fits for the cute card Thursday theme. Here's the link to go and check it out.. http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ ~
I have such a fun card to share today. I think this one is actually a record for me, cause I used 5 different stamp sets for 1 card!!
Also, take a closer look at this Magnolia image....do you notice something??? (click on the card to make it larger)
I GAVE HER A FACE!! I hope you like it, cause I was a little worried that I would wreck the stamp design when I did this, but I think she looks cute!

Here are the details on this card:

Stamps: Magnolia, Will'N Way puppy love, Penny Black - fresh new day and every which way, MSE life moments
Paper: Bazzill basics cardstock, georgia pacific cardstock, autumn leaves designer paper
Ink: SU basic black, versamagic jumbo java, sakura stardust pens
Accessories: Prima flowers, SU felt flowers, brad, May arts ribbon

Images were colored in with prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits, as well as twinkling H2O's and Sakura stardust pens.

Also, make sure you check out my Mom's blog. She has posted some tutorials on techniques for coloring, shading, applying h2o's and doing the backgrounds. They are absolutely fantastic!!! Here is the link to her blog. I hope you enjoy the tutorial as much as I did!!

Have a great day!!

I just love how bright and bold your colors are, also the way you added a more complete face to the Tilda! Such an awsome design!

Trina she is so adorable, and her little doggie too! You did a great job on this, I also love your ATC they are so fun and addictive when you get into swaps...

Really cute card! I read somewhere last week that the Magnolia's don't have mouths because they want the stampers to give them a mouth, so the stamps can be used for different sentiments. So you actually do what was ment to be done with these stamps! ;)

Deb said...
