I'm very excited to help Mama Elephant celebrate their FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!  I've used the newest scene building set called Toy Shop.  It's just adorable!  I've used it here for a "sweet" birthday card......using the cupcake stand and lollipop images.  I've stamped my images with white ink and then colored in areas with my Copics (the white ink "resists" the Copic ink).  My rooftop looks more watercolored as I added Wink of Stella over my coloring.
