Let's Celebrate: Birthday Chi chi

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi again from Laurie with another project for the "Let's Celebrate" challenge going on here on the Portal right now.  This one runs until the 14th of this month so you still have time to make something fabulously celebratory to enter for a chance to win some free stamps.  And we love to see what you all are creating!

For this birthday card I used the  Queen of Everything clear stamp, the Coffee Chihuahua Katzelkraft stamp from Lost Coast Designs, and the smallest butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Set at Lost Coast.

I created my background using Oxide Distress Inks on watercolor paper.  I stenciled my ink colors onto the paper then spritzed it generously with water, let it run a bit, then set it with a heat gun.  I stamped the butterfly randomly with black ink and also edged the panel in black.  

I then stamped my little Chihuahua onto white paper with black ink and cut him out.  I colored him with Copic Sketch markers and added some gold pen to the spikes on his red collar.
I positioned him on my card front then stamped my sentiment onto a white square with black ink.  I trimmed it down to size, edged it with black, and positioned it so my little Chi chi is holding it up and glued both down.  Final step was to layer this with a white panel and you've got a fun birthday card for any dog lover!

Come celebrate with us at the Lost Coast Portal and share your creations!!
