A Birthday and a Celebration card.

 This first card I have combined a Hero Art 'Happy Birthday' grid stamp with
a Penny Black Floating by puppy from a set called  'buddy and duck' with
lots of ohh so cute stamps to pick from.

I coloured the grid with Zig watercolours straight onto the stamp, blending each 
colour together. No water.
I copic coloured Buddy and the balloon. I stamped the balloon string
straight onto the card and then attached Buddy and the balloon. Finished off
by adding Glossy Accents to the balloon.

Added the sentiment grid as though Buddy was flying out from behind it.
The balloon warped a bit but looks ok.

This card is a one layer with a digital image and its just stunning. This one I cant remember
where I got it, the artist is 'jenlee'16' but I cant find the link. If anyone knows the artist
please let me know so I can give credit and a link for others.

I have coloured with Copics R81 R83 R85 and added the yellow with a gel
pen then sparkle with lots of Wink of Stella that shows up in this photo.

Finished off with a die cut 'Celebrate' from Papertrey. Love it, so simple
yet so pretty. 

Thank you all for coming to visit and I hope you will come and visit again soon.

Aileen, both cards are beutiful! Love the balloon off the edge, such details always add so much interest to a card. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards 3rd Birthday Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin

Aileen, these are fabulous! Using Zigs directly on your stamps is something I've never thought of doing but it worked a treat here, and such vibrant colours. But O.M.G. - the way you've coloured the floral digi is exquisite, what an absolute stunner. And even more gorgeous with the added shimmer.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

Great birthday card, Aileen. You perfectly painted this tiled block. He looks like it was a wall made of luxors. Great design
On the other hand, the second card had me speechless. Your lilies look like it was a photograph. So perfectly you painted this picture. Great work and amazing card.

Swooning AGAIN! What an adorable image on your first card and fantastic use of rainbow colours for him to perch on! Brilliantly fun for a birthday THEN your floral one... WOW oozing shimmer, design and the most fantastic colouring. Beautifully feminine and elegant. Thanks for playing along in our 3rd birthday challenge at AAA Cards this week as well as the Less is More shimmer challenge. x
