Happy Birthday Wendy!


Today is a very special day! Our friend and fearless leader, Wendy (owner of SugarPea Designs) is having a birthday and the DT got together and decided to have a little blog-hop birthday party to celebrate! The list of blogs is further down the post.

Some of you commented about all the masking on my penguin card last week, so I made a quick video to show you just how easy it really is, especially if you follow these tips:

1) choose one image that you want to repeat  (I cheated a bit here by putting the girl in the middle of the herd of cows)
2) cut several masks at a time (I usually do 4). This gives you flexibility in placement and allows you to move quickly
3) limit colours and colour in 'assembly line' style - colour all their heads, add the shading layer, then blend, etc

Here's a quick video - you will see that for me, the toughest thing was getting the masks apart after I cut them from full-sticky sticky notes!

Super cute card, Ardyth. You make masking look so easy. Thanks for the tip on cutting out several masks at one. Full stick Post-It notes are perfect for that.

I've done a similar card with another stamp, Ardyth, but I didn't have the darling little girl in the middle. Your coloring is superb.

Belated Happy Birthday to Wendy!! This card is darling and reminds me of "volunteering" to help herd cattle on my uncle's farm (I'm lying, there was no such thing as "volunteering"....lol). Thanks for sharing this adorable card Ardyth. ~HUGS~
