It's Emily Block's birthday--Stamping Bella herself! Shannan Teubner e-mailed me an image of Emily that Christy Croll, the Tiddly's and Bittyblooms artist, had drawn. This image captured Emily so well that I decided to try it, even though I have never colored shiny, naturally curly black hair before. (So when you see the gray marker in there, trust me, it's highlights--not gray hair! ;-D)
I colored Emily with the Copic markers shown on the left--yes, that's a bunch of markers! The colorless blender in the lower left is a custom blend of half colorless blender and half BG000 ink.
Emily's a fun-loving girl, so I chose to go with a retro party look for papers, Cosmo Cricket's Wednesday and Saturday papers from the Girl Friday Collection. The mat cardstock layers are SU's Rose Red, and the birthday wishes tag, cut with a Spellbinders Tags Trio die, is from PaperTrey Ink's Mixed Messages set.
Happy Birthday, Emily!
