so we thought we would make it as special as we possibly can! ...
The awesome Rachel Sharp http://sharkie19.deviantart.com/?rnrd=118353 drew us up an image to use for Betty’s Birthday!!
I had such a ball colouring this wonderful image! Using Copics and a wink of Stella Glitter pen! Printing out the image much larger than I would normally use, to fill a 7 x 7 card base. I used American Crafts thickers for the number 40, and some TCP sticky gems. A bit of American crafts purple twine and a cut little skull charm.
As you can tell I need to spend some time actually studying the classes that I have purchased from Alyce at Kit and Clowder, as the hair is rather a mess, but I thought the dress was quite good, and I lucked out on creating the blue colour combo.
I couldn't embellish the card as much as I would normally, as I was having to post it out to Betty in the USA, and you know what the royal mail postal charges are like, so I tried to keep it clean and simple with just a little bit of bling.
here are the rest of the blogs in the hop. check them out and leave them some love.
Thanks for stopping by!
