FTHS Midweek Inspiration

Wednesday means it's midweek inspiration day for From The Heart Stamps, and today, I'm sharing the card i've made for my uncle's 70th birthday next week...

I've used Birdbrain Brew, but erased the BB from the left of the image on this occasion.
I've coloured the image with promarkers, then added a little sparkle to the beer froth with clear wink of stella.
The papers are from Doodlebug's Hip Hip Hooray paper pad.
I followed this weeks sketch, which is sketch #2 recycled.
I drew dashes around a small side plate with a white gel pen, and finished the card with punches, and mini numbers, & alphabet dies from Tattered Lace.

I'd like to enter this card at:
MAWTT - birds & feathers
Crafty Catz - anything goes (optional: add a number)
QKR Stampede - feathered friends (or anything goes)
Allsorts challenge - I Spy (B) ... 'Birdbrain' and 'Beer'

2 for Emma's birthday

My eldest is celebrating her birthday today. Here are the cards i've made for her this year.

The first, from her dad & me, using DigiStamp Boutique's Alyssa...

My daughter has short hair, so I opened up the image in my paint program and erased her ponytail (just as if i'd not inked up that part of the image if it were a rubber stamp), then printed it out ready to colour with Promarkers.

Papers: Dovecraft's Garden Party, Lawn Fawn's Let's polka in the meadow.
Dies: Creative Expressions Gemini Pictor, Lawn Fawn Scripty For You, Tattered Lace alphabet.
Other: Funky foam (for dimension behind image and text), Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen.

I'd like to enter this card at:
DigiStamp Boutique - April 17 customer competition
Seize the Birthday - 2 patterned papers

Now on to the 2nd card, this one was given to her from her brother...

It uses Lawn Fawn's Donut Worry stamp set.
I stamped 5 donuts in a row, coloured them with Promarkers, and added glossy accents to the 'icing'.
I added a sentiment which was computer generated.

Paper: Nitwit at LOTV Country Meadow.
Dies: Dienamics By the Letter.
Other: Funky foam (for dimension), Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen.

I'd like to enter this card at:
