I have a whole string of birthday's in August and at least 4 of them are for boys aged between 5 and 8 so here is a card I knocked up earlier.
we seem to have a bit of a blue hue going on here but anyway.......
The DP's are DCWV the Green Stack.
The image is Ian from The Greeting Farm and he has been coloured with ProMarkers. Sorry, I forgot to write down the colours this time.
The ribbon was from my friend Judy and I just love it.
This fish charm was from my stash and has been tied up with a bit of jute string.
The tag was another experiment ! I have been following the "Thinking Inking" tutorials (this is a link to all the classes they have run so far and there are more to come in the next couple of weeks) on TwoPeas and the latest have been using alcohol inks. I only have two alcohol inks and are not the colours I wanted so I had a brainstorm and thought I would use my ProMarkers instead.
I coloured an acrylic tag with ProMarkers and let the ink dry before sticking a piece of white paper to the reverse of the tag with glossy accents.
I then stamped the front of the tag with the sentiment and fish in black stazon.
I'm pleased with the result but there are some things I might try differently next time like pick the colour up with the Ranger felt and apply it with the tool rather than directly from the pen. I have a feeling the colours might blend a little better then. I'll keep you posted !
Thank you for your visit. Hope you have a lovely Sunday whatever you are doing and thank you so much for any comments you leave me. I do love to read them.
