Tammy Buccaneer - 40th Birthday

Todays blog post is to show off one of my most favourite Saturated Canary digistamps, "Tammy Buccaneer" and what's more, this digistamp is absolutely free for those who join the Saturated Canary Facebook Group!

This card is for a 40th Birthday (for my sister in fact!) and is just stunning if I may say so myself!

I used various papers, card and lace from my stash and Nenah Card for printing Tammy onto.  The flower dies are by Sizzix, the tag behind the 40 is by Tonic, and the flourish by Tonic also.  The "40" is chipboard, painted up and glittered!
Tammy is coloured in the following Promarkers:
SKIN: Ivory, Blush, Coral, Soft Peach, Dusky Pink
HAIR: Ginger, Spice, Cardinal Red
DRESS: Marine, Petrol Blue
BOOTS: Cool Grey 2 to 5
OTHERS: Putty, Tan, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Moss

I highlighted the earrings and coins with Stickles then inked the edges of the card with "Gathered Twigs" distress ink after distressing them scissors.
I painted the chip board numbers with white acrylic paint followed by yellow and red roughly mixed together.  Whilst the coloured coat was still wet I sprinkled them with copper and red fine glitters.
