Chloe's 14th Birthday Card

After taping the pattern curtesy of Judith Maslen to my homemade light box i traced the bear in black 0.2 ultra fine black pen. Then i turned the pattern over and used a mauve watercolour pencil for the dress and hat. Light brown for the fur dark brown for the eyes black for the nose. i turned it back over using a light blue gel pen filled in the flower petal trying to make them as forget-me-nots, for the flower centers i used a glitter mauve pens and for the hat band and green for the leaves Then just to round it off i added bling for earings. I cut the bear out and then.......yes i did alter it.after looking at it i wasn't happy with the results. So what did I do but took the stickers off had a brainstorm and decided it looked more like a shopping bag so i added 2 luggage labels 1 had shop on it the other Sale of course. put a "hapy Birthday " on it added a butterfly and a bow and some handles. hope you like it and i hope Chloe will also. thank you for reading this blog please feel free to follow if you want too.

Homemade Box

This is curtesy of Christina Griffiths and just a trial run. As I never had any card for the 
base I used wrapping paper hoping it was thickish but sadly it is very thin, a lot less than
 80gsm I made the lid using some spare card and my new hot glue gun. I had made the
Flowers and butterflies with my brand new powder blue and teal big shot. Oh yes and a
 little bit of bling was added. I know it's not perfect but it was a trial and I must say I am 
Impressed. Never thought I had it in me.
