Happy 2014 to you all!!!
For the Milk Coffee Celebration Challenge, you can make a creation using a New Year's theme, a birthday theme, a card for a new baby.... basically any celebration counts!
I decided to use the freebie shown here. They are Javanese Dancers from Indonesia, and what better way to show a celebration than to dance and wear festive clothing?! I also enjoy working with ethnic images so this was perfect!
To decide on colors, I googled Indonesian dancers and found bright outfits. I also added gold by using this special Sharpie marker -- that crown on her is drawn! :)
Now y'all know that I am super bad at using sentiments on my cards. But I really love Suzy Plantamura's Sunny Day Doodles stamp from MFT. Her designs are so whimsical and fun, and the fact that I can color them in with Copics??? Ah...YES, PLEASE!!!
I used her stamp "Celebrate Life" up there, which is part of the set. I colored it in with the same colors as the dancers' costumes to tie in with the card's theme.
The background vellum paper is once again from Tina Azmus Holiday pack. Love it!!
Now, go on over to Milk Coffee to learn more about the challenge and see more inspo from the other DT!
Hope you all have wonderful celebrations!!
