On Your Special Day

I think I'm on a birthday roll this week :)  Here's one I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils...
 The image stamp is from Crafter's Companion Angelica & Adam Acrylic Stamp - Cherry on Top. Such a sweet stamp! All the Angelica & Adam stamps are must have! The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion - Vintage Floral Collection Sentimentals.

To color, I started off by coloring with the markers:
  • Skin: FS1, FS2, FS3, PP3
  • Dress/Shoes/Hairbows/Flowers: BT1, BT2, BT4, BT5
  • Hair: GB2, GB1, GB8, GB9
  • Cupcake and Liner: TN1, TN2, TN7
  • Cherry: CR3, CR5, DR2, DR6
  • Leaves: CG2, LG1
  • Frosting: CR4
  • Ground: EB1
  • Shadows: BG3

Then I added colored pencil enhancements with blending solution and paper stumps:
  • Dress: 063
  • Hair: 110
  • Background Shading: 114
  • Cherry: 033
  • Cheeks: 034
  • Cupcake: 087

To make the flag bunting, I hand-cut little triangle pieces of patterned paper, punched holes, and strung on bakers twine. Some glitter, rhinestones and sequins put the bling bling on things :)

Happy Friday everyone!
