Hope you're having a great week so far!
Today I have a birthday card to share with you. It's Seize the Birthday Thursday today :)! We have no Toppings option for next fortnight. You may enter any birthday themed projects into our gallery!
I've made a one layer card using a cute critter stamp set by Penny Black. It is called Be Happy(30-583) and includes five cute critters with pretty plants on their back :)! I also used a floral stamp from Flower Fantasy set (30-565) by Penny Black to give the giraffe something cheery.
I started off by stamping the giraffe and the floral branch on a white panel in orange and pink archival ink respectively. I then masked the border of the panel and the giraffe to ink blend in the background.
I used Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Worn Lipstick DOX. I splattered clear water on the panel and dab it off. I also added white splatters.
After removing the masks I started coloring the images using Copic Markers. At that point I thought the orange outline of the giraffe is too light, so I drew the outline using a brown fine liner. I added some accents using a white gel pen and gold heat embossed the sentiment from Special Sentiments set (30-574) by Penny Black.
That's it from my side.
Please hop over to Seize the Birthday blog to get some more inspiration from my team mates and our surprise party guest Linda from Lin's Craft Corner.
I'd love to see your creations in the gallery!
Have a crafty day!
