Gosh, it seems I haven't posted all week - my apologies! I feel like my mojo went walkabout and didn't quite know how to make it home, lol!!! I was also busy putting some 'finishing touches' to cards I'd already made to give to a store that sells them - they had an artists open house last night so wanted to make sure I had some stock in!!
Well, I'm here with a card for the Friday Sketchers challenge posted over on their blog. What a fun layout Jacqueline did to work with this week. I thought I'd make this card for my niece's birthday that's coming up, hence the cute ballet Tilda.
I am going to have to apologise (again), hee hee, as the image is not coloured to my normal 'standard'. Why? I hear you ask. Because I've bought copic markers and I've finally gotten a chance to buy some Memento ink which is the only ink that works with them. So last night I was playing around and colouring this image. Please be gentle on my first copics attempt, lol!!!! I didn't want to throw the image away (I hate waste) and that is why I thought it would be perfect for my niece's birthday card. There are a few colour blotches that I'm not happy with but overall, for my first attempt, I'm fairly proud of myself! :)
Here is a close-up of Tilda although I'm not so sure I should show a closer view of my blemishes, hee hee!! Claudia has fabulous copic tutorials over on her blog, although she does state clearly that she is not a qualified copics instructor.
The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory - I used my new hearts cuttlebug embossing folder behind Tilda and added a metal charm 'Make a Wish" with a ribbon for my sentiment. Four pearl brads and a touch of pink and green ribbon finish the card off.
Below is also a pic of how I finished off the inside of the card. It's very simple but I incorporated the same dp from the main front panel and carried it through to the inside. I stamped the image in Memento Dark Cocoa - I'm loving the brown - it's not so harsh as black!
That's all for today! Hope you have a fabulous weekend and get some inking time! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit today and if you post a comment, huge thanks!! :)
