Hello Bluebird | Happy Birthday!
Hi friends and happy Friday!
Today I'd like to share with you a card featuring Hello Bluebird products.
I just love pigs and this set is a must have! You may know I love copic coloring, but sometimes I also like to change and try different techniques.
In this case I really wanted a soft background, so I took out a piece of watercolor paper and I did some wet on wet using the Regular Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. I didn't color all the background, but only the central part, and I also added some "splatters" around it. I also die cut the panel using the second largest die from the Modern Embossed Rectangle from Trinity Stamps.
I then moved to the main protagonist and all the smallest images: I firstly stamped all of them using Gina K Amalgam Ink in Warm Glow as I thought the no-line look would have been better. As I always do when I want the no-line effect, I firstly color the image using Copic markers (see below for all the combos) and then I use Polychromos pencils to add details and define the edges.
I die cut all the images and I arranged them on my scene, using foam tape to create some dimensions.
As a finishing touch, I stamped the small sentiment in the lower part and I matted the whole scene using a light blue cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like it!
