During this last week, 2 of my friends have had birthdays. Here's the cards I made for them.
I used purple checked paper, purple pearlised paper, ribbon brad, fibres and (saving the best till last) Dottie. I coloured Dottie in using my brush markers. Looking at the card, I need more practice. I hope the birthday girl forgives me as this was one of the first images I coloured in. I have my watercolour pencils now and have seen some tutorials as to how to use both.
Just in case you don't already know, Dottie and George have their own blog now. Check it out here.
To make this card, I've torn strips of contrasting papers and stuck them onto a green card. I coloured a Dottie using my brush markers, layered her on orange and green paper and stuck to the card using foam pads. Buttons were added as finishing touch. I handwrote the sentiment which says "I've worked out....." and inside it says "it's your birthday!" I hope the latest birthday girl likes it.
I have done some scrapping, but I need to take a photo. That's a post for tomorrow I think. My photo blog hasn't been updated for a while either. Oops. I'll see what I can find for you and get on to that soon.
