RSC January Happy Birthday!

 I am in a group on Rubberstamp Chat that sends Birthday ATC's to each other- cards are optional. I opted to send a card too:
 I challenged myself to color the images in regular (SU) markers- no Copics this time....  Image is 1990's Embossing Arts- one of my first stamps and well loved in the day....... : )  I used Coordinations cardstock that was then sanded.......  The other self challenge was to use a tag on my card.  I added glimmer with Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen.


 The ATC is on a TJ technique from a really long time ago- a UFO......  I stamped the image on the background in Stazon, then on white cardstock, and cut out the larger portions of the image. The sentiment is from a $1.00 clear stamp. I added lots of rhinestones and shimmer.I used just a portion of the sentiment from the $1.00 set. I have tons of the $1.00 sets that I never use..... Do you collect them too???

Challenges:

Alphabet Challenge- Y is for Yummy -ATC
Bloggers Challenge- Birthday
Oldie But A Goodie- Glitz and Glam- Stardust gelli pen and rhinestones; images some of the first I purchased way back when.......
Shopping our Stash- Use your oldest ribbon : )  Purple organdy is from SU from way back when......

Thanks for stopping by!

Not easy to color with SU markers and I don't really have copics. The coloring is gorgeous as always, GF! I think you could have gorgeous results with regular old crayons! Have a great evening!

Great fun, love the challenge you created for yourself, I need to do that too.

Both projects look great. It would be hard for me to not use my copics when coloring, but these look great.

I love those balloons, Shelly! I'm just sorry they're from a stamp that old. That means it's probably long retired and completely unavailable. Fabulous card, and I love the ATC, too!
