The year of the big birthdays continue... This post its my Dad's 70th and the future Father In Laws 60th. Being the milestones that they are I decided they needed to be bigger than usual so I went for 8 x 8 square cards. The bigger card demanded a bigger image.
I used a templates for the large number and drew round them on the co-ordinating striped paper from the same kit - before mounting them on green card and cutting out again. Happy Birthday is a Pebbles sticker and the letters are from Doodlebug.
The promarkers used are -
Skin - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush & Antique White (Flex)
Hair & Newspaper - Warm Grey 1, 3 & 5
Pants - Icicle, powder blue, blue pearl.
Dressing Gown - Poppy, Ruby, Crimson, Cardinal Red & Burgandy.
Slippers - Pale Citrus, Lime Zest, Lime Green, Pear Green & Marsh Green.
The next card I made for my Dad - who last year took up Crown Green bowling. So I bought this digital image from Digistamp Boutique.
I used the templates for the large number and drew round them on Doodlebug - red spot paper before mounting them on blue card and cutting out again. The Letters for DAD and the "th" are also from Doodlebug. The Background paper is from Pink Paisley and has a gloss effect on the circles. I also added some Glaze on the Bowls to give them some extra dimension. I used a die to cut the grass and for the "happy".
Promarkers used -
Hat - Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal
Top - True Blue, Royal Blue, Egyptian blue (flex ) & Indigo Blue.
Grass - Lime Zest & Pale Citrus.
