Happy Birthday!

Good morning!

It's Friday, so I have a fun card that I created using Crafter's Companion products.
I needed a cute birthday card and thought about this sweet Crafter's Companion stamp set.

So, here is what our friend will find in the mailbox:

I really had fun with this card.  I'm loving this Sara Davies paper pad!

I stamped the image on my white panel, and began coloring.  After I colored the image,
I shaded with a couple of colors, giving the effect of both dimension and movement. (The panel is one single layer).  I made a cloud template, and 'colored' the cloud shapes with my blender pen, resulting in soft, realistic looking clouds. I added some 'pathway' around the patch of green, and finished
the card off with some Glossy Accents and Twine.  Hope you like it!

Here are the Crafter's Companion supplies that I used:

Angelica & Adam EZ Mount Stamp Set-Connor
Sara Signature Collection Floral Delight 6" x 6" Paper Pad
Ultra Smooth Premium White Card Stock 8.5" x 11" Unscored
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers/Pens:
DG2, DG3, DG4, PP1, FS2, BG4, IG1, IG4, IG6, CR8, EB1, EB2, TB2, TN7, Blender

Hope you had a great week, and will get to relax a bit this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Patti J.

Great card Patti, your sky looks fabulous! Wish ours was like this today ... at the minute its very grey and looks like it'll be raining before long. Ah well, it's good for the garden ;)

Beth Norman said...

Great card. I love how well it is coloured and the sky looks so real. A nice change from the sponged on skies I do. Have a great weekend!

This card is simply gorgeous! Love the sweet image and all that you did to create the scene. Beautiful colouring! Thanks for sharing the idea of how to make clouds on a blue sky. Will have to try it!
