B for birthdays, balloons.......
Happy Friday.... Hope the weekend will be enjoyed by everyone.
This double pocket card was made for my grandson's birthday next week. I just love the image and because I am entering it in certain challenges, I chose these colours for it.
The challenges are:
The Outlawz.... Monday...greetings, must have a balloon
Top Tip Tuesday..... blue, green, brown.
Dutch Dare Card challenge...For the kids
This was what I did.
Paper: Kraft cardstock, folded into a double pocket card. Also 2 tags cut from this cardstock. Blue card put through the Cuttlebug with the Happy birthday folder, then matted to the large tag,
Image: Priscilla styles. I printed it twice and mirrored the image to face in the right direction for the card, Cut off the balloons, added some extras and then put them onto the smaller tag with their strings plaited together. The image was coloured with Aquarelle pencils and tombow markers. Cut out the doggie and mounted him with 3D foam pads onto a Nestability cut out, that I shaded with distress ink pads.
Used a Marianne die to cut some grass. and added the number 6 onto the front.
Then I put the strings through the image, so that it was as the original image showed, doggie holding the ballons in his mouth.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend and have fun.
