Happy Wednesday! It's been a minute since my last post. Things are just so darn busy this time of year. Not only do we have a completely booked calendar but it has rained and rained and rained! I feel like the rain just gives me an even bigger sense of being behind on things. We bought a new house in August and had thoughts of doing some landscaping and painting this Spring but we haven't been able to do a thing! As my Mom always says, " it will be there when you get to it" and she's right, those things aren't going any where.
Today I'm sharing a card I created for my great niece who just celebrated her first birthday. I think 1st birthday's are so much fun. I just love seeing the expression the little one makes when everyone sings to them. I have been wanting to use this image for a while now and I feel that a First Birthday is a perfect opportunity!
This card was created using a Mo's Digita Pencil Image, which I printed on Neenah 80# Solar White Card Stock. After printing the image, I colored it using the following Copic Makers:
BV23, BV20, T5, T3, T1, R21, RV95, RV93, RV91, V25, V23, V22. If you watch my video above, I explain the process used when coloring the elephant using these colors. I'll admit it was a strange combination but it was one that seemed to work for me and helped me achieve the color I was looking for.
After coloring the image, I put a little glitter on the tutu using Martha Stewart glitter in purple and a Glue Pen. I also inked the background using Tim Holtz distress ink the colors, Spun Sugar and Pumice Stone. The Pumice Stone distress ink was also used to ink around the edges of paper.
The banner at the top of the card was stamped from a hero arts stamp set and then colored in using my Copic markers. I fussy cut the banners out and adhered them to the ribbon using Gina K Connect.
