Fun (and Green) birthday wishes ~ CYP Challenge 205
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! In honour of the day, our challenge theme for this week at Craft Your Passion is "Go Green". We want to see green coloured projects or projects with recycled elements. My card has both. Our fabulous sponsor this week is Inky Impressions and I chose to play with Birthday Sandy. Doesn't she have the sweetest face? I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut her, and popped her up on foam tape for dimension.
The background started with two papers from a Paper Wishes birthday pad which I overlapped and then matted on a layer of green and a layer of brown cardstock. Two more papers from the collection were punched into semi-circles and layered on the right side. Sandy needed a place to sit so I die cut a tree branch from a piece of recycled packaging and adhered it over the seam of the two papers meeting. Clouds were die cut using an MFT die and a scrap of checked paper. The lettering for Fun is glittery black stickers.
The Birthday Wishes banner also comes from Inky Impressions. I printed it on gold coloured cardstock and then darkened the letters with a black Pitt pen. The dots on each i were created with tiny flat black pearls. Shading was done with Prismacolor pencils and then the banner was fussy cut, matted in brown, and popped up on foam dots. To complete the card, faux stitching was done with a black Pitt pen.
Sandy and I thank you for stopping by today. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the wonderful Green creations from my talented teamies.Hope you'll play along this week and show us your green, too.
