One Wish...

"One Wish" is available HERE
Aud Sentiments' latest challenge is one we all need!  Every month, every year, I burn thru my cards - so it is perfect to jump into a "Birthday Sentiment" challenge!  This time my sentiment is on the inside... allowed in the rules as long as you show the inside.  This is Week two of the challenge which will end Nov. 3, so get crackin' and get those cards in that I KNOW you are makin' - up to 5 entries and you will have a chance at one of TWO prizes.  If you need a kick in your Mojo, do go check out the inspiration from the Designers!
Inside reads "Make a Wish"

  • The image is from one of the challenge sponsors - Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • A scrap of pink CS was used for the inside & was matted with white CS that I colored [the edges that show] with the same dark Copic used in the coloring of her clothing.  This is a valuable tip when you can't find paper to match your palette.
  • I used a Z-fold for the front and mounted my image and mat there.
  • Spellbinders' die was used for the scalloped oval for the image and the mat.
  • A Cuttlebug die cut was used for the sentiment and also for the E-folder for the all white embossed candles. 
  • I thought Baker's Twine was a perfect tie for this little baker.
  • Duo Glue and Gold Foil were used to embellish her earring, shoes and the sprinkles on the cupcake.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
