|This is my entry to the CASology #131- challenge.|
My Godson turned two this month and her sister turned four. They had combined birthday party today and I wanted to make cards for them.
I started with stamping the images from Purple Onion Designs onto a watercolour paper with black pigment ink. I coloured the images with Derwent Inktense pencils and cut them out. After that I created background by stamping the Purple Onion Designs backgrounds stamps with grey ink. I coloured them with Derwent coloursoft pencils. I added snow by going over some areas with Versamark pen and then adding either white or Clear Silver Highlight Embossing powder and heat set them. I inked the sky with Versacolour Sky Blue pigment ink. I die cut circles onto panels that will be my card front and stamped the sentiment from Avery Elle (Oh Happy Day) and Tiddly Inks (Happy Birthday). Then I put the cards together. For the final touch, I added Wink of Stella for the penguin's hat to add some shimmer.
I will enter these cards into these challenges:
Muse Card Challenge #102 - I was inspired by the die cut window and a critter on top of the front panel.
CASology Card Challenge #131 - Birthday card. Maybe mine isn't traditional birthday card with balloons and cakes but I wanted to make something a bit different.
Here are the challenges' graphics:
