Joann's Birthday Card

It's no secret that I've been in love with the art of ching-chou kuik for quite a while.  I make a lot of cards for my friend, Joann, and she was also amazed by this artist's work.  Joann's birthday was Tuesday, so I knew I had to make a card for her with one of these images.  This is a stamp I bought at Sweet Pea Stamps called Red Hearts by ching-chou kuik.
I stamped the image with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored it with colored pencils that were blended with OMS and blender stumps.  The hair is highlighted with Xmas Red Stickles and her eyes, hearts and sun are accented with Crystal Glaze for dimension.  The image and the sticker are mounted on red corrugated paper on top of white card stock from Hobby Lobby.  The design paper is made by The Paper Studio and the border is also a section of design paper by Heidi Grace.  The black rhinestones are by Colorbok and the red and white ones and the flowers and ribbon are from my stash.  To finish things off, I used a white gel pen to add some highlights and a black Zig pen for the doodles.  I just love the classic look of red, white and black together. This image definately was a good choice for these colors.
If you love looking at a lot of different cards, then you'll want to stop back here on Saturday the 29th for the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Bloghop!  There are around 130 different blogs involved in this hop, and many of them will be offering BLOG CANDY, tutorials and even challenges!  These hops are always lots of fun, so even if you can't make it on Saturday, most of the events will be available all weekend long.  I will be drawing the winner of my blog candy for this event on Tuesday, June 1st, so
please make some time to come back and check us out!
