Today I have a couple birthday cards using the Tim Holtz Crazy dog and cat images. First up is the dog with balloons tied onto his tail with twine and I hand-drew the strings from the balloons. I used a Melon Mambo cardbase with punched balloons in Melon Mambo, chocolate, lemon-lime, and medium blue, accenting with a white gel pen. The dog was colored with Copics, and I added glossy accents to his tongue and eyelids. The TH accessories hat was colored with Copics, then heat-embossed with clear detail ep, fussy cut, and placed on his head. The bone was done with a $1 stamp set from Michaels, while the sentiment is TE. I hand-drew the floor to ground this pup, using Copics in shades of pale green, tan and blue. Pink Nuvo drops were the finishing touch for this card.
Here's the cat with a Tim Holtz stamped sentiment and a package stamped and colored, then fussy cut and placed upon the hand-drawn/colored floor. I used some SU! white/silver twine to tie the balloons on his tail and accented the eyes and nose with glossy accents. For this one, I added some aqua Nuvo drops.
I'm entering these into the following challenges:
