Birdbrain Birthday

Hello!

I've been quite productive since I started my meds ... Made a few cards, done the club projects and helped Pat create 6 cards yesterday...

I'm lunching with my GF's on Monday.. One of the girl's is celebrating a birthday and for her card I used a digital image called Bee Happy Birdbrain which I got Here


I like to change some of my stamps and digitals just to fit into what I'm making so I took the bee out of this image, changed the direction of the eyes and I added some lush eyelashes Lol!


I printed the image and coloured it in with Copic Ciaos then used a cloud die to make a stencil so I could add some subtle clouds in the background


 I also added glossy accents to the eyes and a glittery die cut balloon and string - A simple way to add the string and get that little bit of movement is to pierce a small hole both on the part of the image that is holding the ballon and where you want it to end. Then secure on the reverse with tape before adhering to your card base.

I'm entering this at Happy Little Stampers



Ok... Got to get my stuff ready for club tonight ... Have a lovely day/ evening and thanks so much for all your well wishes

Till soon

Now that's what I call a happy birthday card! Oh, my gosh, love it so much! Fantastic with the eyelashes on those beautiful green eyes, and your idea with the balloon string is brilliant! That large sentiment is perfect underneath, and the sponged clouds and glittery balloon... I can't say enough! I'm so glad you're feeling better, and now I feel better, too!

Fun card, Ros! I. Love the bright colours and those fluttery eyelashes :). We were in Liverpool yesterday - I think it might be the first time I've been in since our little jolly last July! Went in the Museum of Liverpool.
