This time at ABC we would like to see your Birthday themed creations. We are sponsored by Saturated Canary with two of their fabulous digi images. The team were also provided with an image to work with and I chose Hayley and Harley.
I made the card and bag below for my Daughter’s birthday. I coloured the image with promarkers and the papers and stickers are from Basic Grey. The sentiment I created on my pc. Sadly, I ran out of time to get the bag done and so I cheated and ran the coloured image through the scanner so I had an image for the bag. I wasn’t as pleased with the result of that, and would colour it in seperately if I had had the time.
The ribbons and flowers are all from my stash. The die cut is from Cheery Lynn called Polynesian Ovals.
I distressed all around the edges of all the mats and layers and stitched most of them on my mini sewing machine.
My Daughter was really pleased as somehow I managed to replicate her hair colour almost exactly on Hayley! As you can see she is a gorgeous shade of Auburn. I couldn’t find these colours in the copics, so went back to my old faithfuls, promarkers. Also the promarkers have the option of the fine tip nib, which came in handy with those pesky loose strands of hair.
Unfortunately you cannot see it in the pictures here but the roses on the little piglet and on Hayley, pus the hem of both their tutus was glittered with a sakura sparkle pen.
