HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR JACKSON!!!

There is a new challenge over at Jackson's Digital Expressions this week .... and always it is an ANYTHING GOES challenge, but the Design Team are celebrating Mr Robert Jackson's birthday!

Here is my Birthday Card for Mr Jackson, using one of his images called Chef Phebe


I coloured the image using alchohol markers, and a white gel pen for the highlights.  I have never tried to 'colour' white clothes before, so this was a bit of a 'hit and miss' experiment for me.  Not ever having had a Copics class or even watched a Youtube tutorial on colouring before, I called on my creative imagination for this, and I think this looks not too bad, don't you think?

To put this card together I used the following:
CUPCAKE DP
CS EMBOSSED AND OTHER OFFCUTS
SATIN RIBBON
DIE CUT AND STICK-ON BIRTHDAY SENTIMENT
OFFCUT OF SILVER CORD

Just by entering this challenge you could win some of the fabulous images available in the JDE store ... check them out here.  There are other prizes available too!
