It's like it's custom made!

**NOTE** this is my second post for today. Scroll down for some red & white challenge goodness!!!!

I discovered Mo Manning digital stamps a few weeks ago, and when I came across this one I was floored! It's like the artist was in my house, or more specifically, my 11yo dd's bedroom!!! I swear, this is my daughter! ... I had to have this stamp. I coloured it up, and tried to hide it, but to no avail. When it was discovered this afternoon I decided to turn it into a card, and told dd she has to wait until her birthday to have it LOL.

The image is coloured with copic markers. I didn't keep an exact list on the day I coloured it, but I'd take a guess at the colours I used as being E50, E51, Y00, Y02, B00, B02, B04, R20, R22, R27, YG00, YG03, YG06, YR00, YR02,YR04, BV00, BV02, BV04, W-1, 2-3, W-5.

The inking around the coloured image is my new Wild Honey Distress Ink, and the background is stamped using Stampin' Up background stamp 'canvas' and SU ink 'Not Quite Navy'. The birthday greeting is printed using Rebekah font, and I stitched around it with a dark grey thread on the machine.

I am entering this card into the Mo Manning Blog challenge 'anything goes'. Go check it out ... there's some gorgeous cards on there.
