Polka Doodles 3rd Birthday

Pin It

Hi everyone,

Todays card was inspired  by the Polka Doodle Birthday challenge. I used a gorgeous digi named Ava from Krista at Saturated Canary. She has the most wonderful little digi's. This one is a free digi she has on her blog right now so if it is still available you should go grab it while it's there.

I colored her with copics but the set I have doesn't have a lot of colors that go together so I used quite a few different colors that I thought would look all right together. I used a 5x7 whisper white base. I stamped versa mark onto the base and dabbed chalk to get the background. I have done this before years ago but so sorry I am not sure the name of the technique. Oh maybe it was called black magic. I used the SU thin dies with my bigshot and cut around the image. I added 7 small rhinestones and 3 bows. I doodled around the cardbase with sakura sparle gel pens and inside the cutout. Added happy birthday sentiment and the card is finished. I love to color so I do enjoy using all the different mediums that are out there to choose from.
