Jan 102011

Katelyn, my youngest granddaughter, celebrated her 2nd birthday yesterday.  This is the card I made for her.

Lucky for me, I got to give it to her in person a few days early.  My whole family.. all 4 of my sons and their families met in Las Vegas and brought in the new year together.  It was a wonderful way to start 2011!

The little bear’s dress has been paper pieced.  I used Copics to color her and to shade parts of the paper pieced dress.  I also used a white gel pen on the dress to dot and accent different areas and fill in the collar and ribbons.

The second card was for my sister-in-law, Patty, whose birthday was a couple of month’s ago.

I used some Flower Soft on the sunflower’s center and then dabbed it with a Copic Marker which was a shade or two darker than the original color of the Flower Soft.  This created an interesting look of depth and shadows.

This striped designer paper from the Webster’s Pages “Wonderfall” collection was close but not the exact colors needed to match the sunflower.  So, I colored parts of the designer paper with the same Copics that were used to color the sunflower image.  Now it matched!  lol

And here are the Copics used for Patty’s card:

My next post will be offering some blog candy with a fun Valentine’s stamp set.

Thanks for dropping by today.
Happy Crafting!
