Sunday, January 17, 2010
I took this sketch from the Taylored Expressions blog and added a technique with ribbon Kristina Werner used on one of her January year in cards and came up with this Birthday card for my sister who turned 25 today. My lovely husband brought me a Cuttlebug and heaps of embossing folders for Christmas, and after finishing this card I remembered I had it and wished I had of used it on the pink background.
Hope you like it!

Added: The brown shadow around the elephant was done by inking the entire stamp in Pink Pirouette a few times and then using the close to cocoa marker just to draw around the edges, the ears and the eye. I had a couple of attempts and the wetter the stamp looked the more bleeding there was by the brown.

So I thought I would give it a go. Here is my version:
Marelle Taylor demonstrated last weekend, it is so easy but looks really great as a background on masculine cards. The heart was made by simply making 2 cuts into a scalloped circle. The shape around the truck was cut with my Cricut using Sure Cuts Alot and the Kristina Werner Journaling Shapes 1 Designer Cuts, from Two Peas.
My husband is away for 5 months with work and it is his birthday in a couple of weeks so I will be sending this to him, hope he likes it.

Card: Chocolate chip, close to cocoa, Creamy Caramel, More Mustard and Watercolour paper
Other: Chocolate chip Grosgrain ribbon, Earth Elements Watercolour crayons, Round Up Simply Scrappin' self adhesive die cuts, dimensionals, K&Company Wild saffron adhesive Chipboard and Cricut Expressions machine
