Good morning, peeps and a lovely sunny one it is too!
The reason this is a dual celebration is, firstly that number one grandson is 17 tomorrow and this is his birthday card and secondly, it's my first DT card sample for Digi Doodle Shop's Best...woohoo! The challenge this week is 'Orange you glad' - we have to use orange on our project, and I just couldn't resist this image of the mice having a party in this Jack 'o Lantern! Especially cute is the baby mouse asleep under his leaf blanket in the bottom right-hand corner - what imagination the artist has to create an image like this!
It was a joy to colour and watch the pumpkin take on depth and dimension as I used my Copics. The colours I used were: Pumpkin: YR00, YR12, YR15, YR18 Stalk: YG13, YG25, YG95, YG97 Mice: E41, E42, E43, E44 Spoon: C1, C3 Grass: All the colours that were in the stalk + YG00, YG01, YG03 Sky: W1, B000, Colourless blender and pale blue chalk
The DPs are from American Crafts, the flourish is cut from a Marianne D die, the label for the sentiment is a Spellbinder one and the sentiment itself is from Lili of the Valley. The ribbon and button are from my stash.
I'm an addicted crafter who enjoys all forms of craft but I mainly spend what time and money I have on card making. A sixty something year old Mum of two and Granny to six. Married for the second time around to Brian, my teenage sweetheart and living very happily in West Yorkshire, UK where I settled eight years ago.
I'm also an Accredited Crafter's Companion Demonstrator. Please contact me for further info.
