Soft Pencil Thursday!

Hello everyone, it is Soft Pencil Thursday! We were asked to create something with an image called "Michu as a Magician". Too cute as always. They left the challenge open, so I decided to make a child's birthday card with it. I think it could be used for both boys and girls. Here is what I came up with:

The card base is Whisper White from Stampin Up, the designer paper is from Me and My Big Ideas, the image and Sentiment were printed out onto Watercolor Paper and colored with my Stampin Up markers and some Smooch pearlized Paint. It is hard to tell in the photo, but the smooch is the red on the inside of Michu's cape, the pink on the inside of his ears, and the purple band on the hat. I love that stuff, I am so hooked on it. The sentiment was punched out with my SU Modern Label punch, and I punched out two more with Bashful Blue card stock, cut them in half, to layer underneath at each end of the label. The sentiment at the top has an extra layer of red dsp punched out with my SU large oval punch. The little accents on the tags are little metal sticky circles by Mark Richards that I found in the sale bins at Archiver's. They are packaged just like my favorite sticky gems from Michael's. Love those too! That is about it for today.

Soft Pencil has some one year anniversary activities going on in May starting with a live chat on Paper Craft Planet on Sunday May2nd at 2pm. I have a link to that site on my sidebar. Also then on May 5th we DT members will be showcasing some projects using Soft Pencil images of our choosing in a blog hop. For the blog hop, start on the Soft Pencil blog (see my sidebar), and you will be directed there where to click for all of the fun!

Keep coming back to visit my blog during this week, as Mother's Day cards are coming up! I have some cards created with punches, some with stamps, some with die-cuts, quite a variety for you to view.

Until next time..................Blessings Lisa
