Many birthday wishes!

This first card was one of the two Stamp Club cards that we made on Friday. While I was cutting cardstock for the projects, I cut a few extra pieces. After the club, I made different styles, using the same basic pieces.

This poor little bird! When I colored him in originally, I kind of obliterated his eyes. So I went back in with my white gel pen and put two careful dots over where you could barely see his eyes. I let the white dry and took a fine-tip pen and re-dotted him some new eyes. I think this adjustment makes him look very alert. :)

Then there's this guy. He's partying it up with some glittery confetti. I colored the dots that were already there in bright colors (plus dotted in some more), covered them with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and voila! A party in the works.

And finally, this little monkey is dropping in to celebrate a fun birthday. He's colored with markers and sponged around him to make him pop a bit more. I added panels of color to his solid parachute and put on some white dots. I covered the parachute with Crystal Effects and when it was dry, I went back over it again with my gel pen to re-highlight the dots and lines in the 'chute. I think he must be ready for some tap dancing, too, because he's wearing patent leather shiny shoes. :)
Have a wonderful Monday!
