Hippie Birthday, Man!

I have a couple of cards to share with you today, that I made using my brand spankin' new rubber release "Hippie Birthday, Man" for Whimsy Stamps!  (for a peek at all my latest rubber images, follow this LINK).  I was born in the sixties, and although I was really young for most of it, I do remember "Flower Power", the long hair, bell-bottoms and bandanas! I coloured both images with Copics, but, I wanted to see what I'd get by using coloured pencil on top to continue the blending.  The first one (purple and green background paper) has the coloured pencil added on top of the Copics.  The second one (green and blue bg ppr) has no coloured pencil.  The only blatant difference I see is on the bird's chest, and I don't think it makes a whole lot of difference on this particular image.  Anyway, just experimenting with colour mediums.  Experimentation is how you grow as an artist!  
Both of these cards went to friends who like to make cards with me.  I hope they enjoy them!


  1. Hi Crissy. These are all so delightful and fun. When i see these i think, "Wow! Now that is creativity at it's highest!" Fabulous work.

  2. Such fun cards!! I want to play around with the pencils/copics combo to see!! Awesome job!

  3. What great cards and love that colouring technique too might be an excuse to buy some coloured pencils to givr it a try. Thanks for sharing your fab cards and lovely stamp too sure to bring a smile to any one born or a teenager in the 60's the youth of today don't know what a fun time they missed.
