Birthday Gus

Makeup for the Weekend - M4TW19
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge - MTSC65

Here's a Birthday RAK that I made for Jan's son from Tweet Designs. He's turning 6 this Friday - Happy Birthday Darrel! :)

I started with the colors from Paper Makeup Stamps weekend challenge - Red, Blue and Kraft. Then I decided to use Mercy's Tuesday sketch for the layout. This birthday monster from PMS is named Gus. Doesn't he look so cute and ready to party in his hat and bow tie? I used a white gel pen and spica gitter pens to color him and a versamarker to add a little bit of shading. I also sponged some bashful blue around him just to help him stand out from the background a little bit. Another thing I love about unmounted stamps is how I can cut a saying in half and stamp it separately or put it back together on the block and stamp it whole. Soooooo much easier than using markers and omitting. The saying is from the PMS Birthday Cheer set. The paper is some remnants of DP that SU! sold a long, long time ago.




Here's a close-up to better show the glitter of those fabulous atyou spica pens.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!




Stamps: PMS Gus the Birthday Monster, Birthday Cheer Sentiments
Paper: Kraft, old SU! DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bashful Blue
Accessories: White Gel Pen, atyou Spica glitter pens, oval nestie, versamarker
