So my niece has a birthday coming up….and she’s going to be turning 8. So I needed a girly card. I don’t tend to do those since I have 2 boys and usually have a stash of boy cards. You know the kind…rockets, construction equipment, dirt, etc. So that meant I had to dig through my stash and work a little bit to create a card. I have 2 great sets that are great for young girls, Technique Tuesday’s My Little Princess and My Favorite Things’ Princess Birthday.
I love the background paper….I’m not sure who made it since it’s from several years ago, but I picked it up from JoAnne’s. So that determined the colors I was going to use on the princess, pink, blue, and green. I also decided every girl needs some bling so I used glitter to edge the sides of the image cardstock and on the ends of the ribbon banner. The banner looked a little bland without the glitter when placed up next to the image so it needed glitter too.
I think I am the slowest Copic colorer there is. This is only the 2nd image I’ve colored so I’m happy with the results but definitely need to put things aside and look at it later to pick up the areas that need more work.
