Epic

Hi all!  Dang- I was totally planning on entering the Saturated Canary challenge for Inspired by a Movie- mine was Pitch Perfect- but life just seemed to have other plans for me this week :) BUT I still got to make a sassy, funky card so I thought I'd share it!  I had such a blast coloring up this trendy girl with my Copics- she's part of a stamp duo called DJ Luv but I kinda cropped the guy out as he just wasn't quite fitting with the idea I had in my head...poor guy :)  Now, normally I pick my papers before I start coloring my image but this time I switched it up- mostly because I had such a strong idea of how I wanted to color her- and I'm pretty happy with how she turned out.  And, lucky for me, she matched some papers from Fancy Pants!  Then I kinda went crazy on the card- I just started throwing Black Soot Distress Ink on everything to grunge it all up and pulled this striped piece of fabric that I've had for, no lie, about 8 years out of the basket where it always sits and stares at me.  When I was looking for embellishments I remembered I had these new wooden die cut thingy's (yes, that is the technical term, lol) from Freckled Fawn and pulled them out to see if there was something that would work- when I saw the word 'Epic' I knew I'd found the perfect thing.  So all in all this isn't the most traditional birthday card but the fun thing is that it's definitely the kind of card I'd love to receive :)  I hope you find something likeable about it as well- thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
