Happy Birthday to Sunday Postcard Art!

"Birthday Wish"
Postcard

Sunday Postcard Art is celebrating it's very first birthday this weekend! Congratulations, and Happy Birthday to Mandy and Donna, creators of this wonderful challenge site! Some of the art created on these tiny "canvases" is absolutely amazing. I'm sure that these little artistic gems will speak volumes to your Muse, so stop by for a piece of virtual cake.

"Birthday Wish" was created for the Birthday celebration at Sunday Postcard Art. Scrapbook paper was dry mounted to a piece of recycled chipboard and then stamped with pseudo writing in Distress Ink. The trim was created from a piece of scrap paper.

The girl's images are from my collection, and the wings from Dover Publications. The pink "aura" was created with a watercolor crayon. Scrolls were stamped with Distress Ink and highlighted with an orange Prismacolor pencil. To add a bit of Birthday "glam", I added a glittered silver crown, sparkly red foam stars, a bit of glitter on the cake and edged the perimeter with silver marker.

Have a very happy day!
