This year I undertook to make birthday cards for the children of St Monica's Home, not far away from where we live. They are boys and girls, ranging in age from babies to 21 (and one or two older). I also make cards for CHOC (children living with childhood cancer) and other various charities, that I donate via our local creative card guild, of which I am the chairlady.
This is one of the cards that will be for one of these charities :
The image is from Squigglefly, called Allie Kisses a Bluebird and is drawn by the talented Cheryl Grant Alger.
I coloured the image using Copics and a white gel pen :
I used a circular digi sentiment and in the centre got a little creative/carried away:
I surrounded the red flower with blue feathers to match the little bluebird, and added fishing line threaded through some crystal beads. (Those that have known me for many years will recognize the technique)
thanks for visiting me today.
I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
CLEAR IT OUT, COLOUR : REDS, STASH (THE FEATHERS, RIBBON AND BEDS HAVE BEEN IN MY STASH FOR YONKS!)
