Sweet Sunday Birthday Wishes

It's Sunday and time for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch SSC115

Ok I flipped the sketch this week intentionally not because of how it was sitting on my desk!  I needed a birthday card for my hubby and we are not the sentimental types so I inked up beer Peep from Stamping Bella's Green Bean Baby line


The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest cream paper. Because hubby doesn't drink beer with a lime in it I masked the lime out.  I paper pieced the label and used a pitch black atyou spica pen on the sentiment.  On the bottle I coloured the image with caran d'ashe pencils and then used a clear glaze pen to make it look like a bottle.  The rest of the image is coloured with copics.  The ds paper is basic greys life of the party.   I didn't add an embellishment on the right side because it would have covered my little peep.

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations - maybe they didn't flip the sketch like me?!  Remember to link your card on Karen's blog if you can play along with us this week.


Thanks for stopping by & have a fantastic Sunday!!
