Happy Bird-day

Another cute stamp from the Tweet set at Pink Cat Studio.
I curled a small strip (about 1/8", maybe more) around a pencil. Instant birthday embellishment!
Another faux airbrushing tag. I used a pale blue in this time. I should have let the blue ink dry longer before stamping the sentiment, but patience is really not my thing. :)
The papers are from My Mind's Eye. The sewing machine came out, the Nestabilities, along with some cute white rick-rack from Doodlebug. The bird was colored using Primsa color pencils. I must confess, that I caved and ordered some Copics (just a few colors to try). I can't wait for them to arrive!
thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving a comment too-I love hearing from you! And, I added my email at the top on the right side, so please feel free to drop me a line anytime! :)
