Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this post I made a Birthday card using Happy Cat Day clear stamp set. I can't even explain how much I LOVE this set. I'm such a cat person, cat mom to 3 cats and a huge, huge cat lover. My mom even said this card is perfect for me and that I should keep it. Of course!

 Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this week's post I made a Birthday card for a boy, teen actually. I'm a HUGE fan of these Oddball images. They are the easiest thing to colour and their expressions!? Awesome!! Another thing that I really love about them are the sentiments, which are so much fun.

This image is called Standing boy.

Distress Ink colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
hair, boots, shirt: black soot
shirt: mowed lawn
jeans: worn jeans

 

For the card I used some old design papers from various paper pads. Sentiment "You're entirely bonkers, but I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are." comes with the image.

That's all from this week!
Hugs, Tamara
