Happy Birthday Liz
Today's card is for a friend of my daughter. She apparently likes a drink (or three), so I thought this image sent to me by a friend would be perfect. The background papers were also a gift, so I'm afraid I don't know who they're by, but I love the pink and brown mix. The image was coloured with Copics, and on checking with my hubby if he thought it was OK, he said he thought I should make her stocking tops a bit darker than the rest of the stocking!! Wonder how he knew that, lol! I lightly distressed the background with 'pumice' distress ink, but made a bit of a boo boo, and got a bit of a dark splodge just under where the girl is sitting, so had to cut into another image, and 'pinch' one of the olives, which I then coloured and stuck over the splodge, hopefully no one will notice, except you guys. The lace is from the load I brought back from Spain (must get some more next time I go), flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, a bit of Tim Holtz film, and a computer generated sentiment finishes it off.
Hope you have time to leave a comment, as I love to hear from you.
