Yes...thankfully you can only READ my singing...and not actually hear it for I am a TERRIBLE singer! LOL! Today is Christy Croll - Owner, Artist and Designer of Tiddly Inks!! I'm so honored to be here today - virtually - celebrating her birthday with her!!
Darling Christy - my wish for you is that you have a fabulous year. To truly enjoy each moment and to live life to it's fullest!! That is my birthday wish for you!!!
And ALSO in honor of today - Christy is having a 25% off sale at Tiddly Inks!! For 24 hours only so hustle your bustle and grab up those gorgeous images!!!
Our challenge today is in honor of our most fabulous lady - Christy's favorite colors are Red, Black and White. So the team has put forth our most crafty selves to create for Christy today!!
I've used one of Tiddly Ink's newest images : Happy Q. She is JUST so cute!! I printed Happy Q out twice. I then colored her with my Copics - twice. I then trimmed out her shirt and skirt and popped them up on my first image in which to create a 3-D effect. I also printed and used the following background papers: Made For You and Quote Me. All stitched on my sewing machine with black thread.
I then opened up the TI Birdie Banner in MS Word and individually typed each letter for my Happy Birthday message. I then trimmed it out, colored the ends of the banner red then adhered it to Happy Q's hands.
I had the red stars all glittery from Christmastime in my stash. I used it as a a sparkly and fun accent to pull attention to Happy Q and to really make her shine. As you can see I also added sparkly, red embossing powder to streak her hair. A bit of red, Grosgrain ribbon formed into a fluffy bow and voila!
I of, OF COURSE, had to decorate the interior of the card as well!! I started with an interior base of grey cardstock. After adding a bit of color via MS Word, I printed out Tweet Note (retiring soon!!! - go grab it up on sale!!). I matted it to SU! Real Red cardstock and stitched it with black thread. I added a chipboard sticker that says BIRTHDAY GIRL glued down with some serious adhesive to make sure that it doesn't pop off on it's way to the birthday girl!!
