Time for a new challenge over on Crafty Cardmakers and this week's theme is Special Birthdays. We are sponsored again this week by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 prize for her online store. My teamies have made some fabulous cards so go check them out.
I made a card and matching notebook for my niece, Ruth, who is celebrating her 18th Birthday
Ruth is a big fan of Manga/Anime so these Sugar Nellie images were just perfect. I watercoloured them with my Whispers pens and cut them out. The background is made using one of Tim Holts Alterations Texture Fades folder (Rays). I dabbed Pearlescent Orange and Pearlescent Yellow inks directly onto the folder, added a piece of white card and ran the folder through my Cuttlebug. I was really pleased with the result. The 'grass' was made by folding ribbon onto double-sided tape. Ruth's name was cut using a Sizzix alphabet - Man Oh Man and I added a stamped 18 to a large yellow brad.
