Card for little Tim

Hi girls,

Still no baby news but the project I did with the new PCS release last week did kick start my creative braincells a bit. Tomorrow is the birthday of a very cool little man named Tim and since I know his mum does enjoy my cards I decided to make him one. I bought the Amazing Duo stamps by The Greeting Farm a while back (I actually bought them from my friend Nikki from Bunny Zoe's and she has them on sale now HERE) but of course hadn't gotten around to actually using them so I decided Tim's card would be perfect to ink them up. The papers are from the Rough and Tough line by Fancy Pants and I thought they would match the stamps perfectly. The big star where Super Ian was glued on are two stars I punched with my new star shaped Nestabilities and that were attached to the card with foamcubes, the background was embossed with a need little embossing tool I got ages ago at my local bookstore, I used some Dew Drops Starlight Black ink to distress the paper and the edges (one of my favorite inks for doing this). The sentiment was computer generated and the free font is called BadaBoom. Here is a close up of Super Ian:
He was colored with my trusted Derwent Watercolor pencils and Copic markers, his belt was done with Liquid Pearls Pewter and he was sparkled up with some stickles (Orange Peel and Crystal). The little guy was 3D paperpieced to give him extra dimension.

Well hope Tim likes my card and of course hope you guys do too. I don't know when I'll be back with another one but I have to tell you Melissa is drawing up some absolutely cute images and my hands are itching again to color them up so who knows :).

Have a great weekend everybody!!!
