Keira’s birthday card

I’m popping in today to show you the card I have made for Keira, who will be 5 next week.

I followed the sketch for this week’s Seize the Sketch ChallengeSTS-#4_01

2013-09-22 18.21.39

I used the cute little “Annie’s Prezzie” stamp from Tiddly Inks.  I coloured Annie using my ProMarkers, trying to use the blender pen more effectively this time, as I didn’t have a pale enough pink.  I laid down a coat of the blender on the skirt, then some Pale Pink on the areas I wanted to keep darker; then, using the fine nib of the blender, I drew some ink from the chisel end of the Pale Pink and then worked the paler colour into the skirt.  I was so pleased with the outcome that I used the same technique for the spots on the dress and hair bow!

The pink mat is “Slipper” by Bazzill Basics.  The white scalloped piece was simply cut from a piece of cardstock and embossed using the Swiss Dots folder for the Cuttlebug.  The rose was made using one of the Petal Pairs punches – I’ve been having great fun with these recently, using YouTube to create various flowers!

Finally, I added plenty of Star Dust Stickles to give the dress, present, shoes and rose some sparkle!
