How are you all?
Thank you to all of you who stop by to say hi and leave me lovely comments. I'm sorry that it has been so long since I have been to visit your wonderful blogs. With the recent school holidays and long weekends and trying to set up the new MIM blog my time to visit you all has been very limited. I'm hoping to make my way around to you all very soon.
The card I am sharing with you today is for my eldest Son who is turning 8 tomorrow. Gee, how time flies!! It doesn't seem that long ago that he was just a babe in arms and now he is almost up to my shoulders (and I'm not short either!). He is also way more techno savvy than I am and his most favourite thing at the moment is his Ipod and Angry Birds.
So when it came to inspiration for his card I was a bit stuck. I didn't have any images that really suited so I decided to draw my own.
I decided to draw a few of his favourite Angry Bird characters..............
I used some 352GSM Neenah Paper that I got from Sammi over at Mad For Markers for this card. I drew the image straight on to the paper with a fine black multiliner pen. (the poor little yellow speed bird looks like someone poked him in the eye with a sharp stick!lol)
That is the brilliant thing about this thick paper, you can colour straight on to it with your Copics and it doesn't bleed through the back . (Didn't think to take a photo to show you the inside sorry).
The following Copics were used
Green Pigs - B91, B93, B95, Y11 and Y13 (moustache YR61, YR65 and YR68)
Timber - E30, E31, E33 and E35
White Egg Bomb Bird - 100 Black, C3 and C1,blender pen, Y21 and Y23
Yellow Speed Bird - 100 Black,Y11, Y13, C1,Y21 and Y23
Balloon - YR61, YR65 and YR68
Cake - E30, E31, E27, C3, C1, Y13 and YR65
Grass - B0000 and Y000
Blue shading - B0000
Mad For Markers have a new challenge starting to use colours from the Grey family on your project. I didn't get a lot of grey in on this card but if you head on over to the challenge blog you will see some fabulous creations from the Design Team to inspire you.
I would love to see what you can create!
