Today I needed to make a birthday card for my son’s classmate, who is turning 7. Desperate to practice with my Silhouette Portrait, I decided to use it to cut the sentiment using one of my favourite script style fonts, Lobster2. I mounted some textured lilac card behind it and even reattached the fiddly middles of some of the letters!
It was about this point that I sat back and did a lot of umm-ing and aaah-ing, while I tried to figure out where I was going next… I got so caught up obsessing about playing with my new toy that I didn’t really plan out the finished card! After a while, I set to colouring a Little Angel digi, which I found on Bodils Scrappeverden (another freebie, thank you!!), sticking to lilac for her dress, shoes and accessories. I only have one purple Pro-Marker at the moment, so I waited for the first coat to dry, then reapplied a second layer in the areas where I wanted a shadow.
