It was my birthday last month and I received some fantastic cards from some fantastic friends in blog land. One of those cards is this one here from Therese from LostinPaper a fellow Aussie. If you have never been to her blog go check it out, she makes the most amazing cards and videos as is obvious with this card here. Who would think to stamp and colour onto pattern paper. I love it. I spend so much time looking at Therese's cards and adding them to my to do list then when I got the card in the mail it was like..... well here I am in front of you... do it. Then a challenge came up asking for us to use pattern paper..... what could be better.
Now don't go to Therese's and not come back.
Isn't this amazing with the Penny Black mouse.
Now we need to look at mine.
I'm still learning with these pencils and was probably a bit heavy handed but
I'm getting there. This was with Polychrome Pencils and used each colour to blend
the next rather than any blending solution.
As you can see up close I stamped my first bear a bit crooked but didn't notice
till I had finished colouring. Too late to start again.
I love the look, so simple to do and finished off with the Happy Birthday
die cut sentiment cut once in black and once in white fun foam.
Thank you so much for this wonderful inspiration Therese.
Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
