Ava Loves To Celebrate!

Hi everyone!

The weekend is here so that means it's time for my OCS blog post! Today I am sharing with you a birthday card I designed. Stamping Bella is another one of my favourite Stamp companies! I love any and all of the Uptown Girls and "Ava Loves To Celebrate" is no exception! I think Ava was one of the first Uptown Girls stamps that I purchased and I have used her many times! Lora carries a lot of Stamping Bella stamps in the OCS online store.

I stamped Ava on Copic friendly paper and coloured her with my Copic Sketch markers. I cut 2 stitched borders and added then to the sides of my layered image. This time paper from Echo Park's Jack and Jill Girl Collection was my choice. I tied some ribbon on the middle of the card and added a bow with a paper rose in the middle. Glitter is a must for Ava and I used clear glitter Wink of Stella on the yellow icing, roses and the bow on the presents.

On the inside I used a sentiment stamp from my "stash" and lightly stamped part of Ava with Memento ink in Angel Pink in the bottom corner.

I also used a concave corner punch on the paper on the inside to add a bit of interest to the sentiment.

Copics used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35
Dress, shoes & present: BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18
Cake: Y21, Y26, R11, R22, BG10
Presents: Y21, Y26, BG11, BG13, BG15, R20, R21, R22
Bow, roses and ruffle: R20, R21, R22, R24
Ground/ shadow: W0, W1, BG000
