Your Favorite People



Hi everyone, today I would like to share another birthday card project with you all!


I started my project by stamping this image by Paper Rose Studio called “Millie’s Bouquet” onto alcohol marker friendly paper and than the colouring fun can begin: today I’m colouring with my Spectrum Noir original TriBlend markers (and two SN Classique markers). You can find the TriBlend markers here!



On this image I used the following markers:

- for the blue flowers: True Blue Blend marker, True Blue Shades marker and Classique BT05;

- for the purplish flowers: Purple Blend Marker, the darkest colour in the True Blue Shades marker and to give the flowers a bit of a pink hue a little of the Bright Pink Shades marker;

- the leaves are coloured with the Blue Turquoise Shades Marker and the Classique JG05 marker;

- around the image I coloured with the Gold Yellow Blend Marker.


After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image using my scissors and a craft knife.


Now that my focal point is done I can work on the background: for this I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base from creme coloured card stock. Onto this panel I stamp my sentiment (from the My Favorite Things “Birth Yay” stamp set) using black ink.



Next I can place my stencil of choice (this one is TCW810s) over the panel and I apply some Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium in the colour “Champagne” over the stencil using a palette knife and set that aside to dry.


The rest of the card is easy: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching dark blue card stock and I adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhere onto a creme coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
