Happy Birthday, Nonni!


It's party time!  Today we're celebrating the birthday of my lovely STAMPlorations teamie, Nonni from Korttikarkuri - Runaway Cards.  Sandie from London Days is kindly hosting the linky party.

Nonni is a fabulous cardmaker and expert colour-in-er ... colourer-in ... she's great with Copics!  I don't own Copics, although I did bag a set of 24 Sharpies for half price in the supermarket yesterday - and they don't count as a spend because they fell into my trolley when I was grocery shopping :)  They're still in the packet, so today I used my trusty Distress Inks to do a stencil print background, and inked the flower in Distress Ink then pulled the colour with a water brush.  The stem is made from a brushstroke stamp.  All stamps are STAMPlorations.

You need to click on over to STAMPlorations.  For one, you can see Nonni's oh-so cute puppy, Rafa, making a guest appearance, and also the Design Team's pet gallery.  And for another, you can't miss the fabulous offers Shery's got on at the moment with the pre-release and the stamp club.


I'm entering this card into Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes and CAS(E) This Sketch.
