Our challenge this month is as always 
ANYTHING GOES....
with a TWIST OF
 'FEELING A LITTLE GRUMPY' 
if your mojo needs a little prod!
The only requirement is that you use a 
SMEARED INK image....

I had a blast creating this not so happy birthday card, isn't he a real grumpie-puss, he perked up when he saw his presents and birthday cake though ;0)


This one is pretty much a CAS card (clean and simple), by my standards anyway coz there's no layered cardstock, no fussy cutting and no 3D embellies.  I stamped Smeared Ink's Birthday Grumpie onto white cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured him with Copics.  The birthday sentiment is part of the Occasions Grumpies set and I stamped it a few times and crossed them out to show you just how grumpie this little guy really is...maybe he really wanted a pink balloon, who knows?  I drew a rectangle around the one Happy Birthday and coloured the interior with Copics too.  I used a brown Derwent Pastel pencil to add the shadow shading around him and blended it with a Dove Blender pen.  For just a touch of birthday sparkle I added yellow glitter glue to the tassel on his hat.  He is really cute in his grumpie-ness isn't he LOL!

Here's the Smeared Ink DT blog roll for the hop!
