Gorgeous Cleopatra With The Stampsmith

Hello and Happy Sunday!
I am channeling Cleopatra today (LOL -just kidding).  I have made a fun Birthday card using the Cleopatra image from the Cleopatra and Friends Shakespeare Heroines Full Sheet. 

The image is stamped with black dye ink.  I colored the image by water coloring with markers.  I picked up the color from an acrylic block with a wet brush.  A green, peach, and tan marker were used.  I really like the soft shades that you can get with this coloring technique.  I tore the image and layered on a piece of DP from Imaginisce.  The card base is made from greenish/gray CS and layered with Glossy black CS.    I added a humorous sentiment on the outside from Victorine Originals.

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday.  I already know who is getting this card for their birthday.   I sure hope she will like it.  LOL.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Take some time to stamp.  It is good for you.  LOL.  Love ya.
