This week I chose to showcase one of the first stamps Rachelle Ann Miller designed for Paperworks Co, Birthday Parade. You can't go wrong with this one as it is great for either a boy or a girl!
I thought I would do something different and instead of going with the bright colors I had planned, I decided to go with a more monochromatic theme, using blue and white. The image is colored with copics. I added stickles to the star on the balloon and on the flower, but decided I wanted some more sparkle. I took my spica clear pen and colored various parts of the image and didn't stop there, I colored each flower, the ribbon, the blue scalloped piece and the centers of all the dots on the DP and also outlined the image panel. Unfortunately I can't quite pick up the shimmer on my camera, but I promise you, it is there! Now for those rounded corners....my corner punch seems to be punching a bit strange, they look a little off.....maybe because I am using the same punch on both layers?
