Rachael's Birthday

Tuesday, 7 February 2012

It's my little sister's 15th birthday on Friday.  She used to look at my blog but I don't think she does anymore, so hopefully I'm safe to show my card!  If you are looking, Rachael, - STOP!  and don't look any further!

My mum wanted a card for her so this is what I did...

I used a digi stamp from Saturated Canary called Nevaeh which I coloured with Pro-markers, Flex-markers and Prismacolor pencils (Skin: Sunkissed pink, Oatmeal, Blush & Pastel pink. Hair: Burnt umber, Chestnut, Cocoa & Cinnamon. Clothes: Antique pink, Dusky rose, Ruby, Tea rose, Cadet blue, Sky blue, Denim blue, Pear green, Leaf green, Aniseed & blender. Pencils, Kelp green, Dark purple, Dark brown, Black & White.)  I then cut her out with Petit Oval Large nestie.

The papers are My Minds Eye; Tickled Pink paper pad.
I coloured a chipboard 15 using one of the pink pro-markers and then coated it with glossy accents.  I then embedded some dewdrops in the glossy accents before smothering with some pinky/peachy glitter.
I had a diamate butterfly in my stash which was on a stick, so I removed the stick and coloured the pearls with the pro-marker.  I also coloured some flatback pearls and added them to opposite corners.
The cherry charm was relieved from my stash and I used a nested bird nestie to cut out the name which was computer generated, by me!

After I had taken the photo's I thought I would colour the dots on her dress with a clear stardust pen.  It's always risky to decide to do something to a card once it's finished and it usually ends in disaster for me!  I took another very bad picture to show the sparkly dress.

The inside is fairly plain using the same papers, pearls, nesties and font as the front.
