I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend:) Tomorrow is the Queen's Birthday holiday here in Victoria, so it's a long weekend and no work!! YAY!!
To honour Queen Elizabeth's birthday celebrations down under, I made this birthday card using Magnolia's Maid Marion Tilda stamp.
In the corner of my card I made up a cute spray of flowers, (the large pink rose and turquoise flower I made) and added a gorgeous laced bow and ribbon.
For the background papers, I used turquoise card-stock and a really pretty patterned paper from Kaisercraft (sorry forgot the name of it). I also used a Kaisercraft hearts punch for the border of the image and inside of card.
Here is close up of the card...I think the colours really blended together nicely.
Here is the corner flower spray...I added a large half pearl to the turquoise flower and used stickles on the large rose.
Remember the Walt Disney movie " Pinocchio", and the song 'When you wish upon a star', well I have had the song in my head for a couple of days and thought it would nice to use for my sentiment ( and I have credited Disney on the back of my card)
I used the baby oil and Derwent pencil technique to colour Tilda's clothing and the more I use this method the better I like it..The hair and skin tone was coloured by copics.
This is the inside of the card, keeping in the same theme as the front, although I don't know why I put holes around the sentiment..Ah well, too late now it's done. (lol)
