Happy Birthday!

Hello I am back with another card for Art Impressions Create with Christmas challenge: to use Christmas stamps...but not for Christmas!
For this card I used Ugly Sweater set.  To get the sweater "non" Christmas I stamped on some copy paper and cut it out creating a mask and then using a Misti I was able to line up the image and the mask so that I would get a stamped image without the Christmas decorations.  For the jingle bells on her shoes, earrings and pom pom on her hat I used some painters tape that I cut to fit and put it on the stamp while I inked it up and then before stamping I removed the tape and it served to resit the ink.  I then had to do a little touch up with a fine black marker to fill in the gaps left by removing the Christmas parts of the stamp.  I colored the whole image with copics and finished the sweater with some white dots with a Pit Pen.

Thank you for stopping by,
 Copics: BG32, E13, E50, E51, N1, N3, N5, R32, RV19, Y26
