Monday Montage Week #123


Welcome friends to another round of Monday Montage! I am so glad you are hopping with us! Today I am sharing the birthday card I made for my daughter. She LOVES Disneyland and we are currently planning a trip there, so I wanted to make a Disney themed card. When I saw the Broadway Bound Suite in the Annual Catalog, I saw the Mickey possibilities and this card is the result!



It's hard to see in the photos, but I used Wink of Stella all over this card to give it some awesome shine! You can kind of see it in the close up below. I also included a photo of the inside of the card. The ice cream shape in the set is the perfect Dole Whip! And we all love Dole Whip at my house-especially Dole Whip eaten at Disneyland!
Here is a close up:

Monday Montage Week #122


Happy Monday and Happy Monday Montage Blog Hop! I am so happy you could join us on this beautiful and hot August day! And speaking of August, can you believe it is August? Already? For me, August is the second busiest month of the year, with December being the first. Not only is it the end of summer and the start of school, but two of my kids were born in August, six days apart! Well, five years and 6 days apart, but their birthdays are six days apart! 
Today I am going to share the birthday card I made for my son. But first, I wanted to give you a little of the back story of this card. My son LOVES Star Wars. He is a walking Star Wars encyclopedia. If there is anything you want to know about Star Wars, even some obscure little detail, just ask him and he will give you the answer. Because of that, I wanted to make him a Star Wars birthday card. I decided on Boba Fett, and I thought I would use punches to create Boba Fett. Well, after looking at my punches and dies, I changed my mind and decided to draw Boba Fett. Now I am not an artitst, at least not a pick up a pencil and draw something kind of artist. All of my kids have that talent, but it's not something I have done a lot. So I am putting myself out there a bit and showing you all this card anyway!



I used the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens to color in my drawing. Then I Sponged Crumb Cake Ink all over it to blend it even more. It's a simple drawing, but I am pretty happy with the way the card turned out! And my son loved it, so that is what matters!
Here is a close up:



To make the background, I added a few drops of Early Espresso Ink Refill to some Embossing Paste and spread it over the bricks pattern from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks with the Palette Knives. I love the texture of the Embossing Paste!! And here is a look at the inside of the card, just so you can see the rest of the sentiment (A sentiment that I saw on a card on Pinterest):
