It’s time for another birthday card and this time I’ve got a dragon flying by to wish happy birthday! The dragon is by Mama Elephant and is coloured up with Copic as usual. I opted for a green and blue combo this time. The happy birthday die is by Lawn Fawn. I cut off the “to you” part and coloured it in colours matching the dragon. To finish it off I used a turquoise card base and three enamel dots to match the letters.
I have another card made using pencils on kraft today. This time the image is by Lee Holland and I’ve used Prismacolor Premier again to colour it up. I wanted the card reasonably simple, but with a fair bit of white, so I cut the panel down to pretty much a square and found some twine. Thankfully I had some that matched very well and I tied on a charm by Tim Holtz that I’ve had forever. A Mathia Design sentiment embossed onto black card stock and three enamel dots from Altenew finished off my card.
Dragon and snowdrop
I have coloured up a few of Lee Holland‘s adorable images this year, but I think this might be the first time one of them has made its way onto a card. It would work as both a birthday card and a Christmas card (well, and encouragement and friendship cards), but in the end I opted to make a birthday card out of it by using a Papirdesign sentiment. I kept the whole thing quite simple. The stamp was coloured up using Prismacolor pencils.
Whimsy Wee Freddie
For my second release project for Whimsy Stamps I picked the adorable dragon Freddie from the Wee Stamps collection. I’ve kept the card very simple, using a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps.
Copics used: (purple) V000, V09, V12, V15, V17, (orange) E08, YR04, YR07, YR20, YR23, (pink) RV17, RV55, RV63, RV69, (green) YG13, YG67, (ground) N0, N1, N3, N5 + white Gelly Roll
It has been quiet from me the past few days as I have decided to do my Christmas shopping early this year. Well… start on it early anyway. So Manchester with its Christmas markets, Arndale Centre and Trafford Centre, as well as a trip to Blackburn is taking up most of my week! I have actually gotten a good start on the gift shopping as well, yey! Anyway, because there are Christmas decorations everywhere already, Christmas Carols played over the speakers and Christmas films on the TV, my card today is perhaps as far away from Christmas as it gets!
I have coloured in this adorable Sylvia Zet Wee Stamps dragon copics. The ribbons are from the Hobby House, the background paper is Papermania, the sentiment is Kort&Godt, the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I believe the die is a QuicKutz one.
The various bits will be linked up when I get back home at the end of next week!
