At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Happy Birthday.We have the fabulous Birdie Brown as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.
For my card I’ve used a totally adorable image from Birthday Bear set by Birdie Brown,the sentiment is part of it too,and coloured them with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.To create the kind of ‘fuzzy’ effect on the bear I went over it several times with my pens and covered quite a large area with the lightest colour first.This way when you apply the darker shade,then overlay the light colour when blending it bleaches it out a little and you get a mottled appearance.You have to be aware that when you layer up the ink this way it does deepen the colours despite having heard the contrary! The pretty papers are freebies from the centre pages of a past copy of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.I’ve got a ton of back copies with these in and I’m trying to make it a mission to use them up.I’ve teamed them up with some coordinating cardstock.I’ve created some fancy borders and corners with a punch and a die.A couple of layered Prima Flowers and a handful of gems have been added to embellish.
