Happy Birthday



Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start.  It’s time again for our Anything Goes over at Seize the Birthday.  I would love for you to join us, but please remember to make it a Birthday theme.

Here are a few card details:  I got this wooden stamp recently and couldn’t wait to ink it up!  First, I inked it up with very light grey ink and then colored it in with Prisma Colored Pencils. I believe it’s only the second or third time that I have colored on black cardstock. I love the look of it, and not sure why I don’t do it more. The banner die is from MFT and the sentiment is from Verve. In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t added the various (MFT) leaves in the open spaces…but what you gonna’ do. What’s done is done.

I would love to also link this card up over at The Flower Challenge where they want us to use one of our latest stamps.

The DT and our Surprise Party Guest Julie have really got some great cards over on the blog, come on over and check them out.

Take care, Nanc’

  1. Beautiful birthday card and gorgeous floral design. I love the colored pencil look on the black as well.

  2. This is so pretty! You rocked it! I’ve never coloured on black paper – do you need Prisma pencils? If so, I will need to get some – it looks fantastic.

  3. Beautiful card, Nancy! I’ve tried this once and loved it. Thanks for the inspiration….I’ll have to try it again.

  9. The pencil coloring just glows off that black, Nancy. This is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing it with us at The Flower Challenge.

  10. Pretty! Love the colouring on black. I do like my MISTI, but sometimes there’s an old-fashioned rubber-on-wood ya just gotta have – good choice on this one!

  12. This is gorgeous Nancy, the pencil on black looks amazing, Cathy x

  15. So rich looking on the black.

  16. Pencil coloring on black always looks classy and elegant! Love it! I think without the extra leaves it would have looked a little bit empty. It was a great touch, Nancy!
