Digital Stamp Bird Cage Roses card
Introducing my new digital stamp called 'Bird Cage Roses' that will be available in my store soon. For now if your quick you'll be able to pick it up for free in the current round of the progressive challenges at Crafters Digital Arts Center. Details below. I designed this digital for my eldest daughter which adores all thing shabby chic. It was a little tricky to create the card without her seeing, but she took off early on the morning of her birthday and I was able to put it together before she returned.
The image was coloured with copic pens. I used a mask to create the white scroll in the background and sponged over it with lolly pink stamping ink. I also added the same sponging to one corner of the main image so that the stick on 'Happy Birthday' would stand out. The doily under the pretty little flower arrangement was lightly stained as well. I made a little stick pin for her and the butterfly was silver but I used a yellow/gold copic pen to give it the appearance of gold. Worked really well. The finishing touches are the simple bow with the long ends and the little group of pearls in 2 of the corners.
  Digital Stamp Bird Cage Roses inside card
The inside was keep very simple with the paper I used doing most of the work for me. After scanning the front image I used it again inside on the side of the card where I placed a birthday verse.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to pick up the digital stamp 'Bird Cage Roses' and while your there join my own forum / group and if you going to check out the blog hop you'll want to join in Digital Stamps 4 Joys forum / group as well.
